Happe Spine named Andrew Iott as its president and CEO, the devicemaker said Dec. 7.
Mr. Iott has more than 20 years of experience in the medtech industry and is a co-founder of Globus Medical, according to a news release. His appointment comes as Happe Spine prepares to launch its Integrate-C cervical interbody spinal fusion cage.
In March, Mr. Iott was added to Happe Spine's board of directors.
"I'm convinced that the spine and broader orthopaedic industry are looking for implants that make a leap forward in material science to provide an enhanced platform for osteointegration and Happe is that material," Mr. Iott said in the release. "I am looking forward to working with this team to launch market disrupting products."
The company's Happe platform has interconnected, cancellous porosity with exposed hydroxyapatite on pore surfaces. It is designed for stong bone in-growth and on-growth.
