Insightec, an Israeli company specializing in magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS), has appointed its chairman, Maurice Ferré, as CEO. The move comes as the Haifa-based company secured $22m in new funds to ramp up commercialization of its US FDA-approved technology, which is designed for the noninvasive treatment of diseases and conditions in women’s health, oncology and neurology. Prior to joining Insightec, Ferré was co-founder, chairman and CEO of Mako Surgical, the robotic surgical company that was sold to Stryker in 2013. He replaces Kobi Vortman, Insightec’s founder, who will remain on the company’s board of directors.
