EDINBURGH, Scotland (July 26, 2019)—Current Health, whose FDA-cleared wearable device combines continuous wireless monitoring and advanced data science to deliver proactive health care, announced two new hires.
Richard Lennox has been named chief operating officer and medtech veteran Sean Ginney was named vice president of sales.
Lennox, an experienced business leader with a reputation for helping tech startups accelerate hypergrowth, will develop and implement the company’s strategic approach to growth, and oversee product development.
Lennox was a principal at Original Angle, a high-growth consultancy, and spent more than eight years in senior leadership roles at Skyscanner. He was integral in Skyscanner’s rapid growth to 70 million monthly global travelers. Before being acquired for £1.4 billion in 2016, Skyscanner had more than 950 employees in over 10 offices worldwide and more than £150 million in annual revenue.
“Richard’s remarkable talent for scaling companies makes him the right choice to help us accelerate and propel our team forward,” Christopher McCann, CEO and co-founder of Current Health. “Since receiving our CE marking here in the U.K. and two FDA clearances in the U.S., we’re experiencing incredible growth and interest from top healthcare systems around the world. We need a talented business leader to implement sound strategies for sustainable growth while overseeing our product development, and we’re thrilled that Richard has joined us.”
Ginney spent 15 years at Medtronic, the world’s largest medical device company, serving in sales, leadership and strategy roles. He oversaw multiple business units and commercial teams and was responsible for large health system commercial contracts. After Medtronic, he scaled medtech startups into leading disruptors that changed the way health systems and clinicians operate.
“Sean has a remarkable background in strategic sales and leadership in both Fortune 500 companies and disruptive startups, so we're thrilled to have him lead our sales growth efforts as we transform healthcare delivery worldwide,” said Christopher McCann, co-founder and CEO of Current Health.
Current Health has partnerships with 12 of the largest health systems in the U.S., including Mount Sinai and Banner Health, and several NHS Trusts in the U.K. Its wearable device and platform continuously track more vital signs with ICU-level accuracy than any other available device, offering a complete view of patient health and precise warning alerts so clinicians can intervene early. The solution helps reduce hospital readmissions, which is a $30 billion problem in the U.S.
