University of Washington Spinoff Cardiac Insight Gets New CEO, Gears Up for FDA Push
9/21/2012 7:29:45 AM
Cardiac Insight got its start with a scientist at the University of Washington. Then it needed an experienced engineer/entrepreneur to put together a medical device that was good enough to put on the market. Now it’s turning to the guy who it hopes will end up selling the company for a big return. Bellevue, WA-based Cardiac Insight, the developer of an inexpensive, lightweight heart monitor, has named Brad Harlow as its new acting CEO. Harlow replaces the medical device entrepreneur Tom Clement, who will stay on as president of Cardiac Insight for a couple more months until the company turns in its first application for FDA approval, Harlow says. Once that filing is done, Clement will turn his attention to another UW spinoff he’s been running, Aqueduct Neuroscience.
