Change of Chief Executive Officer

Sphere Medical Holding Limited, an innovative point-of-care monitoring and diagnostic devices company, announces that, Luciën van Os, currently Chief Operating Officer, is to take over as Chief Executive Officer from Wolfgang Rencken, who is stepping down from the Board this month.

Luciën joined Sphere in June 2015 as COO. He has more than 12 years’ experience in the medical device industry. An engineer by background, Luciën has significant experience in bringing new technologies and products to the market. Luciën has previously been CEO of some small and mid-sized medtech companies and has held senior and general management positions at Medtronic and Gambro.

After close to 4 years at Sphere Medical and having successfully secured the future of the Company as a privately held entity with a new strategy, Wolfgang is stepping down as CEO to spend more time back in Germany with his family. Wolfgang will remain with Sphere until at least the end of 2017 and has committed to help in any way possible to ensure a well-structured and smooth transition.

David Martyr, Chairman, said, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Wolfgang for his tremendous contributions to our Company, his strategic vision and hard work to transform and guide the Company during his time in office and wish him all the best of success and happiness in his future pursuits. We are confident that Luciën will be an excellent leader of the Company as it enters this important new phase of development.”
