German tablet ultrasound system developer eZono has made ultrasound industry veteran Graham Cox CEO, effective 1 June. He will succeed co-founder and acting CEO Allan Dunbar, who will stay with the company as chief commercial officer. Mr Cox previously worked for another ultrasound specialist, SonoSite, for 13 years, most recently as vice-president, worldwide sales and distribution. SonoSite was acquired by Fujifilm in 2011 (www.clinica.co.uk, 15 December 2011). Before this, he had senior positions at ATL Ultrasound (which Philips acquired in 1998, www.clinica.co.uk, 3 August 1998) and Acuson (which Siemens acquired in 2000, www.clinica.co.uk, 2 October 2000). Privately-held eZono’s first-generation product, the eZono 3000, is CE marked for sale in Europe and gained US FDA 510(k) clearance in July 2011. The Jena-based firm’s ultrasound devices are aimed at the point-of-care market.
