“I am very appreciative and excited to join OrthAlign as Chairman and CEO,” said Mr. Timko. “With close to 60,000 cases of consistent clinical outcomes completed, OrthAlign's technology has made a positive impact on improving patient outcomes in joint replacement and will continue to do so for many years to come. Our immediate focus will be to expand our customer reach and our application pipeline so that more physicians and healthcare facilities can utilize our clinically beneficial and economically friendly portfolio of products.”

Prior to joining Blue Belt Technologies, Mr. Timko served as President and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroVasx, Inc., President of Carl Zeiss Surgical, Inc., and as Vice President of Siemens Medical Systems, Inc.

"As OrthAlign hits another inflection point in its successful history, the Board of Directors is delighted to have Eric take the reigns as Chairman and CEO of the company," said Carter McNabb, OrthAlign Board Member and Managing Director of River Cities Capital Funds. "Eric's prior leadership experience throughout his career is tailor made for the next stage of growth that lies ahead for OrthAlign. He is one of the medical technology industry's most respected and innovative executives and we are confident that his leadership and vision will help fulfill the promise that our unique technology can bring to the changing orthopedic landscape."

"The Board of Directors would also like to recognize outgoing OrthAlign CEO William Maya for his leadership over the past six years," continues Mr. McNabb. "He has been instrumental in helping guide the organization through a critical growth period and effectively helped put OrthAlign technology on the global map. The OrthAlign family is extremely grateful for his service."
