Piomic Medical, at the forefront of innovation in the treatment of hard-to-heal wounds, today announces the appointment of Bertrand Hughes as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company. Mr. Hughes is a highly experienced wound care executive with a track record of more than 30 years in the medical device industry.

“Bertrand brings tremendous experience to our Board from his many executive roles in leading global wound care companies.” states Christopher Hertz, CEO of Pomic Medical. “Bertrand’s election is perfectly timed as we build towards further clinical investigations and the commercial launch of COMS® therapy in North America. His extensive experience in building successful MedTech companies and strategic transactions within the advanced wound care space will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business.”

Mr. Hughes added: “I look forward to working with the Piomic Medical Board and management team to successfully bring the COMS® One therapy system to patients in need. Every 20 seconds a leg of a diabetic patient is amputated, remaining the leading cause of major amputations in our modern health care system. Based on real-world patient experiences and clinical trial results, I believe that Piomic Medical has a unique value proposition in order to address a huge unmet medical need, especially for diabetic patients around the world. The simplicity of use of COMS® allows it to be used easily across the continuum of care, from in-patient clinic to home care.“

From 2012 to 2015, he was the Global Business Director for Electrical Stimulation Wound Therapy of Mölnlycke Healthcare, and from 1999 to 2001 President of Mölnlycke Healthcare Inc..
