Stocks in this article: CYTX

Cytori Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ: CYTX) Board of Directors has appointed David M. Rickey to serve as the Chairman of the Board. Mr. Rickey has served on Cytori’s Board as a Director for more than 13 years, and he also serves as the Chairman of the Compensation Committee of the Board. Lloyd H. Dean will continue to serve as an independent member of the Company’s Board of Directors, and as a member of the Governance and Nominating Committee.

“Cytori’s cell therapy platform has the potential to bring about an entirely new class of therapeutics that are innovative and cost-effective,” said Mr. Rickey. “In the role as chair, my priorities will be to represent the interests of our shareholders and to help guide Cytori’s growth as it aims to become a leading independent global biotechnology organization.”

“I look forward to continuing my service with Cytori Therapeutics and guiding their future success,” said Mr. Dean. Mr. Dean is a national leader in healthcare and serves as the President/CEO of Dignity Health, one of the nation’s five largest health systems. He requested the transition to accommodate the growing demands associated with ensuring that both Dignity Health and the nation are fully prepared for the January 2014 implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

“Mr. Rickey has played a critical role in Cytori’s growth by providing us with invaluable operational and governance experience during his 13 years as a director,” said Chris Calhoun, CEO of Cytori. “We are grateful to Mr. Dean for his leadership and service as Chairman for the past two years, and look forward his continued service to Cytori and our shareholders into the future.”
