Our Leadership

Chris Riedel

Chris Riedel

Founder, CEO

One thing drives me: delivering value. I’ve spent the past 15+ years building, implementing, and managing innovative technologies fueled by results-driven teams. I have been in the private sector, the public sector, and have spent the last decade leading technology strategy and innovation projects for a major research university.  My history has given me a unique perspective on how to leverage technologies to solve incredibly complex prolems for the future. Supporting and strengthening the surgical value chain is a complex problem. And I wake up every day excited by the challenge and convinced in our ability to create and deliver unmatched value.
