MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., March 29, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex:INFU), the leading provider of infusion pumps and associated products and services in the US and Canada, has appointed Tom Ruiz as Vice President of Sales for Large Volume Pumps (LVP). Ruiz was formerly the Regional Business Manager of the Acute Care Division for Smiths Medical where he directed sales for all six of the division's product lines. He was promoted to that position from Regional Business Manager for the Medication Delivery Division at Smith, where he was responsible for sales of infusion pumps and related products.

"Tom Ruiz brings a wealth of experience gained during a career of high achievement in durable medical equipment sales and pharmaceuticals," announced Sean McDevitt, Chairman and CEO of InfuSystem. "He greatly enhances the breadth and depth of what we believe is the strongest leadership team in our infusion markets."

Ruiz was ranked in the top three nationwide in Smiths Medical sales for eight of the past ten years. In 2007 he was recognized as the Outstanding Global Sales Person of the Year. He started his career with Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, where he was selected to teach the Xerox PSSII course at Merrell's national sales training center.  

Ruiz will report to Tom Creal, Executive Vice President of InfuSystem. "During our careers in healthcare, I have sold against Ruiz and I have sold to him. He has always been a top, tough competitor. More important, the strength of his passion, commitment and ethics, fits perfectly with our customer-first philosophy," stated Creal.

InfuSystem is a leading provider of ambulatory infusion pumps to the outpatient oncology market as well as new and pre-owned infusion pumps and other biomedical equipment, and biomedical recertification, maintenance and repair services to hospitals, oncology practices and other alternate site health care providers. Headquartered in Madison Heights, Michigan, InfuSystem delivers local, field-based customer support and operates Biomedical Service Centers of Excellence in Kansas City, Los Angeles and Toronto.
