Stryker nabs former DePuy CEO to lead ortho division | Personnel Moves


 Stryker hires former DePuy CEO to lead orthopedics
Orthopedic giant Stryker (NYSE:SYK) appointed David Floyd, former CEO for rival device maker DePuy Orthopaedics, to lead as group president of its orthopedics division.  

In March Floyd stepped down as chief executive of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) subsidiary DePuy amid the fallout over the ASR hip implant recall, after which he took over as CEO of OrthoWorx.

Floyd left to pursue outside interests, DePuy officials said at the time. He had started with DePuy in September 2007, and left during a damaging metal-on-metal hip controversy that had already cost the company $1 billion by the time Floyd stepped down.

Floyd is joining Stryker, effective November 15, where he will oversee the company’s reconstructive, trauma & extremities, joint preservation, orthobiologics and performance solutions businesses.
