Mark Alvarez Joins Irrimax as Chief Executive Officer

Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the recruitment of Mark Alvarez to Irrimax, where he will serve as Chief Executive Officer.

Irrimax is an Atlanta-based medical technology company that is redefining wound irrigation with Irrisept, the only FDA-cleared medical device for irrigation containing the proven antiseptic chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG).

Alvarez was most recently Chairman, President & CEO of BC Technical, a healthcare services company focused on diagnostic imaging solutions for hospitals & clinics across the US. BCT was acquired in 2017 by Alpha Source, a portfolio company of Baird Capital. Prior to his BC Technical role, Mark was Chairman-Elect & COO of Microtek Medical (Nasdaq:MTMD), a global manufacturer of custom infection control products acquired by Ecolab.

“Mark is a high-energy executive who has demonstrated the ability to fund, grow, and sell small to mid-sized healthcare companies but also has held P&L responsibility in a large global medtech organization,” commented Tom Callaway, MD, MBA, President of Life Science Partner. “His strategic experience in the infection control space will be indispensable to Irrimax during this important inflection point in the company’s growth.”

Alvarez earned a MBA from Illinois State University, a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Louisville, and has completed multiple executive programs at the GE Leadership Institute. He is a former professional tennis player and lives in Atlanta.
