Meinhard Schmidt Appointed as Cellnovo Non-Executive Director
Mr Schmidt extends the considerable leadership experience of the Cellnovo board, bringing also a passion for medical and communication technology combined with considerable knowledge of diabetes management. Much of this experience was built during his many years as a senior leader within Roche Diagnostics, where he repeatedly delivered competitive advantage by implementing a culture led by customer need.
“We warmly welcome Meinhard to Cellnovo,” said William McKeon, Cellnovo CEO. “He brings considerable relevant experience to the board and long experience of effective commercialisation. Meinhard is a great fit for the company; his insight and expertise will be crucial as we launch the world’s first mobile-connected diabetes management system.”
“The Cellnovo team has freed itself from historical concepts of diabetes management, and has developed a system, with mobile connectivity, that puts the patient at the heart of enhanced control while eliminating the principal burdens of self-management.” added Mr Schmidt, ”I am delighted to be joining Cellnovo’s board, and to be joining a team that has turned an ideal into a practical system that will improve the lives and care of thousands of diabetes patients.”
