New President to Promote Leadership in Hyperbaric Technology

ANAHEIM, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- "Hyperbaric medicine is just in its adolescence today and I see our company providing the technological platform for a wide range of future applications and global markets," stated Edward Pulwer, upon accepting the position of President/CEO from the Board of Directors of Sechrist Industries. Sechrist has been in business for over 30 years and maintains the largest installed base of single-place hyperbaric chambers worldwide and has, for many years, led the industry in innovation and technological advances in this complex medical platform.

Mr. Pulwer joins Sechrist with over 25 years experience in medical technology, most recently with Cardinal Health where he was the senior operating executive for the respiratory care business in ventilation and technology. Prior to his tenure with Cardinal Health, Mr. Pulwer was executive vice president and chief operating officer for Viasys Health Care, a NYSE-traded company acquired by Cardinal Health in July, 2007 for $1.5 billion. Mr. Pulwer helped spearhead the acquisition of Viasys by Cardinal Health.

According to Tom Quinn, chairman of the board for Sechrist Industries, "Ed Pulwer brings to Sechrist the kind of vision and experience that our industry needs. The world is poised for dramatic new developments and applications of medical technology and it takes strong leaders like Ed to provide the stimulus."

In addition to his extensive executive experience in medical technology fields, Mr. Pulwer has a multi-faceted background with positions in marketing and sales and hospital administration as well as performing clinical research.

According to Pulwer, "I am excited to accept this position and to be working with the exceptional management team and organization here at Sechrist. We look forward to an exciting future."

Mr. Pulwer replaces Jack Rollins, who resigned his position as CEO of Sechrist to pursue other interests.
