North East, MD, February 19, 2016 – Operative Experience, Inc. (OEI), a fast rising developer of high-fidelity human simulators for surgical and pre-hospital education, today announced two additions to their executive team. Jane O’Reilly, named the new Global Vice President of Sales, and Carlos Moreno, the new Chief Technology Officer, will play major roles in OEIs’ global expansion plans.
“We are thrilled to be adding these two accomplished executives to the OEI team, said Mick Navin, President/CEO of OEI. “Our goal is to be a global leader in medical simulation. Jane and Carlos both helped grow a small simulation company into a global leader. Their experience will be invaluable as we accelerate our product development and growth.”
Jane O’Reilly comes to OEI with more than 15 years of experience growing medical simulation companies. During her 10 years at METI, O’Reilly played a leadership role in doubling overall company revenue and building out a world-class sales organization.
“OEIs’ products are nothing short of revolutionary,” said O’Reilly. “The global medical simulation community has been asking for this level of realism for years. I am excited to work with the team to grow the business and expand distribution opportunities.”
Carlos Moreno joins OEI with more than 20 years of technology leadership, including eight years as the Chief Technology Officer at METI where he led the development of iStan and METIman.
“Joining OEI is an extraordinary opportunity to help an innovative young company become a significant global player in the medical simulation market,” said Moreno. “The need for OEI’s 21st century technology is real. There’s nothing like it available today. I look forward to contributing to OEIs’ future innovations and success.”
OEI produces simulators to rapidly train surgeons and medics in critical, life-saving trauma skills for cesarean section, control of postpartum hemorrhage, emergency hysterectomy, craniotomy, neck exploration, emergency thoracotomy, damage control laparotomy, fasciotomy and leg amputation.
Last month, OEI announced that Louis H. Oberndorf, a pioneer in the field of healthcare simulation and the founder of METI, had made a significant investment in the company and accepted the position of Chairman.
OEI’s founder, Robert Buckman, MD, a surgeon and former professor at the Temple University School of Medicine, developed the OEI technology under a series of SBIR grants from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command. The DOD is currently one of the primary users of OEI’s simulators.
