Mills River, North Carolina – Brian Hutchison has become the new president and CEO of Raumedic Inc. based in Mills River, USA. He took over the position on February 8, 2022, from Stefan Seuferling, who will continue to assume overall responsibility for Raumedic’s global business operations in his role as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Raumedic Inc. and CEO of Raumedic AG.

Brian Hutchison is an experienced executive in the international medical technology market. The U.S. native has more than 30 years of experience in the areas of medical devices and biotechnology. He was the ideal candidate for the position, thanks in part to his vast understanding of medical technology and the pharmaceutical industry and the valuable management experience he has gained in high-ranking positions at Stryker Corporation, RTI Surgical and Catalyst OrthoScience.
