"We play a critical role in managing and moving market share. I think the device sector has not necessarily acknowledged the role of the GPOs, but I think increasingly, as products mature in particular, GPOs play a vital role in helping to drive market share up on behalf of a supplier." — Novation CEO Jody Hatcher
MassDevice held its 2nd annual Big 100 Roundtable West event in Newport Beach, Calif., December 11. A group of nearly med-tech executives and stakeholders gathered for an evening of networking, insight into medical device marketing and intimate interviews with David Pyott, CEO of Allergan; Tom Prescott, CEO of Align Technology; James Mazzo, president of Abbott Medical Optics; and Robert Grant, chairman and Strathspey Crown.
If Robert Grant is successful – a good bet, judging by his track record – 1 day his new venture, private equity firm Strathspey Crown, will be known as a leader in the nascent field of "lifestyle medicine."
