IRVINE, Calif., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCQB:MRIC) today announced that its Board of Directors has elected medical device executive Timothy T. Richards to the Board. Mr. Richards' diverse background in the medical technology industry includes over 25 years of international experience spanning the areas of operations, market and product development, and global commercial expansion.

Since October 2012, Mr. Richards has served as the Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Seventh Sense BioSystems, Inc., a venture capital-backed start-up with a focus on point-of-care diagnostic testing, where he was recruited to build and develop the company's commercial organization. Prior to joining Seventh Sense BioSystems, Mr. Richards served as President of Facet Technologies, LLC, a privately-held supplier to major diagnostic companies where he led the company's manufacturing and supply chain platform. Mr. Richards held executive-level positions within the Covidien organization, first as U.S. President of the Patient Care & Safety Products business unit, and subsequently as President of VNUS Medical Technologies following its acquisition by Covidien in 2009. He served as Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer and a member of the Executive Board of B. Braun Medical Inc., a leader in infusion therapy and pain management. Before joining B. Braun Medical, Mr. Richards held a number of progressive leadership positions throughout the U.S. and Asia with Becton Dickinson and Company.

Mr. Richards received his B.A. from Lake Forest College, and he has participated in executive management and organizational development programs at Stanford Business School, Columbia University, European School of Management and Technology and American University.

"Tim's considerable experience broadens the Board's operational intelligence," stated Kimble Jenkins, CEO of MRI Interventions. "His involvement and leadership throughout his career across multiple business functions, including marketing, sales, planning, business development, manufacturing and supply chain, will provide valuable perspective throughout the continued development and expansion of our products and services."
