A pair of local firms, PerkinElmer Inc. and Cambridge Consultants, announced management promotions.
PerkinElmer, the Waltham, Mass.-based medical devices giant, tapped Lapo Paladini for its newly created chief marketing officer post.
Paladini, who’ll lead the company’s push into global markets (especially in Asia and South America), was promoted from president of one of the company’s international units. He’s a veteran of several management positions at the firm, which he joined in 1982.
Cambridge Consultants, which has joint headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., and Cambridge, England, named Mark Manasas manager of its surgical & interventional products group in the Bay State.
Manasas, who’s been with the firm since 2005 as a project manager, is a medical device design industry veteran with stints under his belt leading his own R&D shop and at Fossa Medical Inc. and Johnson & Johnson Orthopedics.
