Inogen CEO and president Scott Wilkinson announced his intention to retire from both of his positions and as a member of the Board of Directors before the end of next year.
Wilkinson plans to remain in his current position until his successor is appointed while assisting the board in the search for his replacement.
“On behalf of the board, I want to thank Scott for his significant contributions and dedicated years of service to Inogen,” chairperson of the board Heath Lukatch said in a news release. “Scott’s leadership and industry expertise will be missed by Inogen, and we are extremely thankful for his many contributions during his tenure. The board and management team are committed to ensuring a smooth transition, and we are grateful that we’ll continue to benefit from Scott’s experience and perspective throughout this process.”
Inogen said it has initiated a process to identify Wilkinson’s replacement and intends to engage an executive search firm to support the search.
“Inogen has significantly evolved since I joined in 2005, and I have been honored to lead Inogen as Chief Executive Officer,” Wilkinson said. “After 15 years with the company, I believe now is the right time to begin the transition to the next phase of leadership. I intend to work closely with the board to help identify, recruit, and successfully integrate a new CEO.”
