Life Science Partner recruits former Vice President, Biomaterials Manufacturing, of Integra Life Sciences, Inc.
MiMedx Group develops, manufactures and markets regenerative biomaterials and bioimplant processed tissue. With its acquisition of Surgical Biologics, the leading supplier of amniotic tissue, MiMedx has supplied over 90,000 implants to date to distributors and OEMS for application in the Ophthalmic, Orthopedics, Spine, Wound Care and Dental sectors of healthcare.
Two of the Company’s key tissue-derived products are experiencing significant market expansion – AminoFix and EpiFix. AminoFix provides a solution for in vivo wound covering to reduce scar tissue formation and attachment. The EpiFix solution provides improved outcomes for patients with full or partial chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, vein circulation ulcers and artery circulation ulcers that fail to heal in a typical conservative care regimen.
Tom Hochuli, a seasoned biomaterials manufacturing and operations executive, has joined the MiMedx Group as Vice President, Manufacturing. In this role, he will lead a team to process approximately 900 donated tissues per quarter. Hochuli will be responsible for planning, creating and executing a rapid expansion of the manufacturing facility due to the company’s increasing sales growth.
In his previous role at Integra Life Sciences, Inc., Hochuli was responsible for biomaterials manufacturing within the Global Operations Division. He led the flagship manufacturing plant through major initiatives to improve quality systems and increase compliance with ISO and FDA regulations.
“Tom is a solid leader with a track record of increasing numbers of employees and facilities under his responsibility,” noted Tom Callaway, MD, founder and president of Life Science Partner. “He has accountability and his personality style will be a great fit with the camaraderie of the MiMedx Group.”
Hochuli earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Clarkston University and earned his MBA at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.
