J-Pac Medical said it named former GI Supply finance chief Michael Dolge to be its new CFO and tapped Phil Littlefield, a medtech veteran, to be its vice president of operations.
Somersworth, N.H.-based J-Pac, which makes implantable textiles and offers packaging and manufacturing services to the medical device industry, said Dolge’s resume includes stints at Rohm & Haas, Goodrich, Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and Deloitte & Touche.
“We are at a critical juncture where there is a huge opportunity for J-Pac Medical to leverage its unique combination of value-added capabilities for implantable textiles, turnkey packaging, thermoformed packaging, and medical device manufacturing to increase our presence in additional markets and grow the company overall,” president & CEO Jeff Barrett, who joined the company in December 2015, said in prepared remarks. “This will require a strong leadership team, and bringing a seasoned CFO of Mr. Dolge’s caliber on board will be an invaluable asset to the company as we take J-Pac to the next level.”
“I am very impressed by what J-Pac has to offer the market and look forward to working closely with Mr. Barrett and the J-Pac team to optimize the company’s financial performance and help implement the company’s growth strategy,” Dolge added.
Littlefield has extensive experience in Lean/Six Sigma manufacturing, global supply chain and logistics management, and organizational development in FDA-regulated industries, J-Pac said.
“Mr. Littlefield is known for driving continuous improvement, implementing innovative game-changing processes and serving as a team mentor,” Barrett said. “These skills will make him a tremendous asset as we look to bolster J-Pac’s market presence as a contract provider of turnkey and thermoformed packaging, complete medical textile solutions and medical devices.”
“J-Pac has a unique combination of capabilities and extensive expertise that make it an ideal partner across a number of medical sectors,” added Littlefield. “I am excited to work with the team to optimize its operational processes so that we can maximize our value to our customers, as well as attract new business.”
