Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the recruitment of Ron Hebert as Vivex Biologics’ Vice President of Marketing.
Vivex Biologics, a leading regenerative medicine company that markets tissue technology products and cellular therapies focused on orthopaedic applications with an emphasis on spine related therapies, has developed a diverse portfolio of current products including cellular bone matrices, amniotic tissue, general orthopaedic treatments, and sports medicine products to meet the therapeutic demand in the areas of spine, dental, sports medicine, and wound care. The next stage of the company’s growth is the launch of its new product, VIA Disc. This viable allograft is delivered by a minimally invasive procedure and will be used for the treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). As the company continues to grow in the spine and biologics space, it sought a talented Vice President, Marketing who could lead the branding campaigns and support the efforts of the geographic and product-focused sales forces.
Hebert was the Vice President, Marketing, Communications, and Growth Initiatives at MEDNAX, a physician-led healthcare organization that partners with hospitals and health systems to provide a wide range of clinical services. Coming into one of the largest physician-owned/operated national staffing companies, Hebert refocused the company strategy to the hospital-customer and provided them with proof of value. He also created programs that productized services such as women/children, anesthesia, and ENT/plastics specialists.
He also spent a majority of his marketing career at Beckman Coulter serving as Director of Global Strategic Marketing and Global Product Management and Strategy. Hebert’s notable accomplishment during his time here was being able to provide innovation within the traditional product portfolio of the hematology unit.
With the arrival of Hebert, Vivex will gain a marketing leader, an integrative thinker that focuses on the customer needs, a person with a demonstrated track record of successful product launches, and a strong communicator. By utilizing Hebert’s expertise in hospital-based marketing, Vivex Biologics hopes for continued growth of its new products and a skilled manager of its existing lines.
