According to Mr Wolfgang Oster, MD, PhD, chairman of the board and managing partner at PolyTechnos Venture-Partners, “Eamonn’s wealth of expertise and solid track record of success in our medical device field makes him a formidable source of wisdom and judgement for the road ahead of Cappella. The company’s commercial programmes and global market expansion will greatly benefit from Mr Hobbs’ insights.”

When asked to comment on his recent appointment, Mr Hobbs stated, “I am delighted to join Cappella’s board of directors and support the cause of this company, which is all about addressing a substantial unmet medical need. Whereas long under-diagnosed and under-served bifurcational lesions have now attracted the much deserved attention of the medical community and I am convinced that Cappella has put the best team on the field to tackle the challenge. I am thrilled to work with Dr Art Rosenthal and our board of directors to deliver this technology to patients in need.”
