"Greg's results-oriented skillset will play a vital role in further enhancing our sound corporate infrastructure as more and more cosmetic physicians in the U.S. and internationally adopt our device to help meet the ever-growing consumer demand for safe and effective non-invasive procedures," said Matthew Likens, president and CEO of Ulthera. "I am confident that Greg will provide steadfast leadership to ensure a strong financial future for our growing company, especially as we tap the potential of our platform technology."

Waller's three-and-a-half decades of experience showcases a solid track record of strategic financial growth for both privately held and publically traded companies.

During his 25-year tenure with Sybron, he was instrumental in the IPO of the company and in more than 30 company acquisitions worldwide. He also played a pivotal role in supporting the growth of the company from 100 to more than 4,000 employees and from $10 million to more than $750 million in sales.
