Heart failure device developer Sunshine Heart Inc. has appointed John Erb CEO, effective March 2. Erb had been filling in as interim CEO after the departure of former chief David Rosa in December. Rosa left amid the company’s struggles with the US pivotal trial for its C-Pulse system. Erb, who has more than 40 years of experience in medical device leadership and financial posts, has served as the director of Sunshine Heart since September 2012 and was named chairman in October 2012. He is a founder of NuAx Inc. – formerly Cardia Access Inc. – and from 2001 through 2006 he served as CEO of CHF Solutions Inc., which was acquired by Gambro Inc.
