Accomplished regulatory executive enhances Nfocus device development team.

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Endovascular device start-up Nfocus Neuromedical Inc. announced today the appointment of accomplished regulatory executive Robert O'Holla to its leadership team in the role of Vice President of Regulatory Affairs.

"Bob O'Holla brings an unmatched wealth of regulatory and compliance experience to Nfocus, having served 18 of his last 30 years in the industry in the role of Worldwide Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Medical Devices, for Johnson & Johnson," said President and CEO Martin Dieck. "His disciplined and strategic approach to the product development and approval processes set him apart as a worldwide expert. We are thrilled to welcome him to Nfocus Neuromedical."
