SAN JOSE, California, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- C8 MediSensors, Inc. (www.c8medisensors.com), today announced that industry veteran John Kaiser has joined the company as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Kaiser takes the reins from Paul Zygielbaum, a C8 MediSensors co-founder who guided the company as CEO though 2012, but is stepping aside for medical reasons. Mr. Zygielbaum will continue to contribute significantly to the organization as he has for the past nine years.
Mr. Kaiser has thirty years' experience in the medical device sector. After starting his early career with Abbott Diagnostics, John worked at Boehringer Mannheim (now part of Roche) for a decade in successive positions including Vice President of two key divisions. During this time, John and Boehringer launched the world's first blood-based glucose diagnostics, a business that ultimately grew into the $4 billion glucose/diagnostics business purchased by Roche.
Subsequently, John was then CEO & Chairman of BioCircuits Corp, then Founder and CEO of Vetmedsupply, and later CEO of Aperon Biosystems. For the past two years, John has worked with various venture firms on several medical technology business plans and diligence. He also was a member of the Sensys Medical board of directors for many years, so with this and his long tenure at Boehringer Mannheim in diabetes, he brings great domain expertise in the diabetes sector.
John has served on other boards and in other positions throughout the device and healthcare sector and participated in the commercialization of many medical products.
