Marie Meynadier, PhD, founder of EOS imaging, has been appointed as an independent director to the Alphatec board.
Dr. Meynadier has more than 25 years of experience in the medtech industry. She is former CEO of Biospace Lab, a preclinical imaging company, and was CEO of EOS imaging until 2018.
Dr. Meynadier continues to serve as a director and head of EOS imaging's strategic committee.
"Her wealth of imaging expertise will be invaluable as we integrate EOS imaging and extend the technology to establish new standards in spine," Alphatec CEO Pat Miles said in a June 21 news release. "We also look forward to leveraging Marie's global leadership experience as we further develop and then execute [Alphatec's] strategy to expand into untapped international markets."
Alphatec acquired EOS imaging for a reported $116.9 million in April. The companies are combining their U.S. sales teams to create a capital and spine hardware distribution network.
