Stryker announces key personnel changes.
Orthopedic device maker Stryker Corp. is making several management changes.
Financial officer Dean Bergy is resigning to pursue a long-term interest in charitable organizations, and the head of the company's medical and surgical products business is retiring.
The Kalamazoo, Mich.-based company said Bergy would remain Stryker's CFO through the first quarter of 2009 and then serve as an adviser to the new CFO, Curt Hartman, during a transition period.
Hartman, global president of the instruments division and an 18-year veteran of the company, has been promoted to the new post of vice president of finance. He also will hold the CFO role.
Si Johnson, group president of the company's MedSurg business, will retire after 29 years with Stryker and will serve in an advisory role to chief executive Stephen MacMillan through 2009.
The firm elevated Lonny Carpenter to the role of group president of the instruments and medical divisions, which together generated about 20 percent of Stryker's 2007 revenue of $6 billion.
Stryker also named Tim Scannell to the post of group president for spine and endoscopy and Andrew Fox-Smith to group president, international. Tony McKinney was promoted to vice president and chief accounting officer of the company.
