He is the chair of the Mayo Clinic Division of Engineering. We are a small, but influential organization that creates hope for our patients through the development of novel devices and technologies. Everything we do, we do to change the patient experience. The way we do that is through providing solutions that help our healthcare teams better care for our patients.
He had held many different roles within the Division of Engineering, which gave him extensive experience across all aspects of the organization. He started his career as a medical device development engineer and later he transitioned to management roles where he led the development of our project management office, their electronics, software, and mechanical development units, and our machine shop. He was a deeply-rooted commitment to and knowledge of engineering, my loyalty to Mayo Clinic, and my position as a leader and expert in the medical device field makes him well-positioned to contribute to our mission.
