EOS imaging, Paris, France, appointed Gérard Hascoët as chairman of its board during its recent shareholders’ meeting. Hascoët brings more than 30 years of entrepreneurial and international experience to support EOS imaging’s development strategy.
Hascoët began his career within the medical technology branch of Thomson CGR. In 1985, he founded Technomed International, now within EDAP TMS, dedicated to non-invasive medical treatment in urology. In 1993, he founded Sometec, a hemodynamic monitoring company divested to Arrow International, and IMMI, a neurosurgical robotics company divested to ISS. From 2008 to 2011, Gérard was chief executive of SpineVision, a spinal implant company of which he still is board member. In 2009, he cofounded MD Start, a European incubator for medical technology companies, of which he is currently executive chairman. He is also venture partner of Sofinnova, a European healthcare venture firm.
Hascoët succeeds to Mike J. Dormer, chairman of the company’s board since 2012.
“Since 2012, EOS imaging has executed a remarkable growth strategy and I am delighted that an entrepreneur as talented as Gérard Hascoët will now be helping the company continue this development,” Dormer said.
Marie Meynadier, chief executive of EOS imaging, adds: “We are very happy with our achievements over the last three years and extremely thankful to Mike’s support over that decisive period. Gérard Hascoët’s strategic vision and entrepreneurial expertise in medical devices will be key assets to the company’s progress in establishing a leadership position in orthopedic solutions based on imaging.”
