St Jude Medical (US) is to establish a new corporate presence in Canada with effect from January 1st, 1996. St Jude Medical-Canada will be managed by Gary Jordan, currently vice-president of sales and marketing with the company's heart valve business. The new operation will combine the Pacesetter cardiac rhythm management division sales and support organisation with the heart-valve implant and repair products business, where St Jude is now represented by Canadian Cardiovascular Products. The move follows thorough strategic analysis showing the need to establish a cohesive corporate presence for all its products in Canada, says CEO Ronald Matricaria.
