LinkSPINE Names Tom McLeer Vice President of Sales and Marketing

Rockaway, NJ March 7, 2017 — LinkSPINE, a medical device company focused on the development of less invasive techniques for spine surgery, has named Tom McLeer Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

McLeer is an established medical device executive leader who has made a name in the industry by exponentially boosting sales for existing companies and leading startups through clinical approval and into full commercialization. He most recently served as Senior Vice President of US Commercial Operations for Alphatec Spine. Previously, he was CMO and General Manager of Spinal Operations for Pioneer Surgical Technology and VP of Sales and Marketing for Archus Orthopedics.  Earlier in his career, McLeer was VP of Marketing and Business Development for Spinal Concepts and VP of Marketing for Interpore Cross International.

“We are excited to welcome Tom McLeer to the LinkSPINE team to lead our Sales and Marketing efforts,” sad LinkSPINE President, Dennis Farrell.  “Tom’s deep leadership experience in spine and familiarity with novel technologies will be invaluable to us as we as we continue to expand our less invasive Midline Choice product portfolio.”

Farrell added that LinkSPINE remains committed to developing innovative solutions which reduce surgical morbidity and which are designed for placement with minimal fluoro and shorter learning curves than tubular MIS techniques; and that McLeer is ideally suited to help bring those solutions to the surgical community.

‘Midline Choice’ is LinkSPINE’s comprehensive midline fusion portfolio, which includes CorticaLINK and FacetLINK.  A single kit houses a complete array of screws and devices, offering the surgeon the ability to intra-operatively create a less invasive fusion construct based upon each patient.

“I’m excited to be part of such a great team and I look forward to working with my existing contacts to help advance this minimally invasive procedure to a wide patient population,” said McLeer.  “I was drawn to LinkSPINE’s dedicated focus on improving patient outcomes — and it’s innovative portfolio of powerful, yet simple solutions for less invasive surgery. The devices are novel, elegant and intuitive and fulfill a desire for a simple, less invasive approach to lumbar surgery, adding true value for surgeons who are tiring of long learning curves. It will be rewarding to be part of the company’s growth and success.”

McLeer and his new LINKSpine colleagues will be exhibiting the company’s technology in Booth 907 at the Spine Summit 2017 AANS/CNS Meeting in Las Vegas, from March 8-11, 2017.

LinkSPINE is a privately held medical device company focused on the development of less invasive techniques for spine surgery.  LinkSPINE is a sister company of Waldemar Link GmbH of Hamburg Germany, a worldwide leader in Reconstructive Orthopedics.
