The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) is pleased to announce the addition of three new members to the Board of Directors: Jim Hollingshead, Kevin Sayer, and Randall L. Rutta. The Board provides leadership for carrying out the Consortium’s mission to promote patient access to safe and effective medical technologies.
Jim Hollingshead was appointed president of ResMed’s Sleep and Respiratory Care business in June 2020, an extension of his role as president of Sleep, which he’s held since July 2017. He previously served as president of the company’s Americas region, beginning in March 2013. He joined the company in 2010 as vice president of Strategy and Business Development. In 2011, his role was expanded to include the leadership of ResMed’s Ventures and Initiatives unit, responsible for growing early-stage businesses. An industry leader in digital health, Jim helped create and execute ResMed’s strategy to transform its business – and the sleep therapy industry – by introducing built-in communications on all of its sleep apnea devices, coupled with cloud-based business process automation applications that help customers grow revenues while also cutting costs. Under Jim’s leadership in the Americas region, ResMed launched the Air10™ Series of cloud-connected CPAP machines, which led to rapid share gains and unprecedented adoption of its SaaS platforms.
