Chad Kolean, Chief Financial Officer

Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the recruitment of Chad Kolean as Vivex Biologics’ Chief Financial Officer.

Vivex Biologics is a leading regenerative medicine company that markets tissue technology products and cellular therapies focused on orthopaedic applications with an emphasis on spine related therapies. They have a diverse portfolio of current products including cellular bone matrices, amniotic tissue, general orthopaedics, and sports medicine products to meet the therapeutic demand in the areas of spine, dental, sport medicine, and wound care. Vivex is preparing for its next stage of growth with the launch of its new product, VIA Disc. This product will be used for the treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). As the company continues to grow in the spine and biologics industry, it sought a seasoned Chief Financial Officer who understood the landscape of this field.

Kolean previously served as the Chief Financial Officer of Titan Spine, a medical device surface technology company. One of his major milestones in preparing Titan for success was controlling and managing inventory and manufacturing challenges. His attitude helped put the company’s financial house in order.

He was also Chief Financial Officer of Cellectar Biosciences, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, where he restructured management and raised funds, which led to an uplisting on the NASDAQ Capital Market. Before that, Kolean served for Pioneer Surgical Technologies as their Chief Financial Officer. He was responsible for the financial aspects of leadership restructuring, development and execution, treasury, board support, investor relations, and operations.

Kolean’s arrival will provide tremendous guidance and leadership to Vivex Biologics as it prepares itself for the next stage of growth and development and the launch of a new product in the biologics space. By leveraging Kolean’s experience as a financial leader in the spine and orthopaedic industry, the company hopes for continued growth and preparation for a future financing event.
