“The Board believes that Brad is a terrific leader, who brings with him a strong track record of growth and value creation, and we welcome him back to Orthofix at a time when the Company is in a fundamentally solid position,” stated Chairman of Orthofix James Gero. “We also want to thank Bob for his many contributions over the past several years guiding the Company through difficult times and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Former President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Vaters commented, “I am very pleased with the tremendous progress we have made navigating some challenging circumstances over the last several years and believe that the Company is now well positioned to resume its growth trajectory under Brad’s leadership. Brad’s unique expertise and strong operating performance make him the right person for the next stage of the Orthofix story.”
