“I’m very excited about joining the InnoMed team as they have been innovative in the field of sleep and respiratory care for many years,” says Richard. “They have an environment that instills entrepreneurial approaches to creating new products, which in turn have had a positive impact in the health care industry. A key to the success of this company has been consistent leadership, responsiveness to the input of clinicians and patients, as well as placing a great deal of pride in their R/D efforts as well as their engineering expertise.”

Most recently, Richard served as CEO for the Americas at REKA Health Inc and has over 30 years of experience in the health care industry. Over the last 25 years, Richard has launched more than 25 products into the respiratory market and holds six patents with a number of other pending approvals in the areas of sleep and respiratory.

Growing market share, increasing sales, and building brand recognition are the legacies Richard has left throughout his career, from his early days at Nellcor Puritan Bennett and Thermo Medical Group, to the more recent at ResMed and SeQual Technologies. As a pioneer in the industry, he has proven to be a patient advocate first and is known for developing products that improve health care outcomes.
