Executive Summary

Adavium Medical, a company focused on selling medical devices and diagnostics in Brazil, has appointed Claudia Goulart chief operating officer and president of its diagnostics division. Goulart, who has been a board member of Adavium since 2013, was the former CEO of GE Healthcare for Latin America. She has also held senior leadership roles in a number of private equity-backed companies. Adavium was founded in 2011 and partners with other medtech companies to help them navigate the Brazilian market and commercialize their products in the country.
