9/4/2009 10:28:10 AM

MAHWAH, N.J., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Mindray DS USA, a Mindray Global Company, announces the recent appointment of Michael Thompson as vice president of ultrasound sales for the U.S. Thompson brings more than 20 years of medical sales, sales force management and business development to the position.

"Mindray has experienced substantial revenue growth in its ultrasound product line throughout the world," said Frank Gregorio, vice president of Sales Operations, Mindray DS USA. "Now we are focusing on growing our ultrasound business in the U.S., which is the largest ultrasound market in the world. With his excellent experience and track record, we are pleased to have Michael lead our efforts in providing affordable, state-of-the-art ultrasound solutions to this strategic market."

With U.S. headquarters in Mahwah, N.J., Mindray was founded in 1991 in Shenzhen, China, with a mission to deliver high-quality, competitively priced medical devices to make healthcare more accessible and affordable around the world. The company's ultrasound platform has especially experienced growth and is recognized for its significant performance to value ratio. Mindray acquired the Datascope Patient Monitoring division in 2008 and merged the North American business together to form Mindray DS USA, a new health care organization which designs, manufactures, and sells, medical imaging, patient monitoring, anesthesia delivery, and in-vitro diagnostic products.

"I am very impressed with the high image quality and value proposition of the Mindray ultrasound technology," said Thompson. "More than ever before, the North American health care systems are searching for cost effective, capital equipment solutions, without sacrificing performance. Mindray is well positioned to meet these market needs. The Mindray ultrasound systems are also very reliable which has resulted in tremendous customer satisfaction. I look forward to expanding the company's presence in the $1.4 billion U.S. market and providing our customers with these well-proven ultrasound platforms."

Prior to joining Mindray, Thompson was the director of business development and corporate accounts at ZONARE Medical Systems, a developer of compact ultrasound systems. At ZONARE, he led a team that was responsible for supporting numerous national accounts including Kaiser Permanente and Health Trust. Thompson also held executive positions at Datascope Corporation, where he built a national organization to support customer sales and service. He holds a Bachelor in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin.
