Pavmed (NSDQ:PAVM) this week appointed Shaun O’Neil as EVP and COO
O’Neil has served as Pavmed’s chief commercial officer and executive VP of business development since joining the company in 2018. Through his new roles, he will be responsible for overseeing diverse corporate operations and commercial activities within Pavmed and its subsidiaries. He will serve on the executive committee as an executive officer of the diagnostic device maker.
“I am energized to take on this expanded role at such an exciting time for Pavmed and its subsidiaries,” O’Neil said. “We are in as strong a position as ever to execute on our strategic plan, drive commercialization of our products and grow long-term shareholder value. That strength is built on a solid balance sheet, groundbreaking technologies, and the best team in the industry. I look forward to helping execute on our vision to transform PAVmed into a leading global medical technology company.”
Prior to joining Pavmed in 2018, O’Neil held numerous sales and marketing leadership roles in the industry, including at AngioDynamics, Aycan Medical Systems, Harris Interactive and Quality Solutions Group.
“Mr. O’Neil has been an invaluable member of our company and its leadership team since joining us nearly four years ago, including playing a central role in our transition to a commercial enterprise,” Pavmed Chairperson and CEO Lishan Aklog said in a news release.
“He has built a solid and rapidly expanding commercial infrastructure — including sales, marketing, and market access —most notably for Lucid and its products, as well as nascent commercial teams for other commercial and near-commercial products. He has also played important roles in numerous other critical corporate initiatives, including the launch of our Lucid Test Center network, our transition to a dedicated CLIA-certified laboratory and in various business development activities. His deep involvement in operational and commercial activities across the breadth of the company make him the ideal candidate to serve as our inaugural COO, a position launched to accommodate our rapid growth to nearly one hundred employees over the past year.”
