Thomas M. Burns, the former Hospital Sales Director for Artromick, has been named successor to Mr. Albright.

"Charlie has enjoyed a long and successful career in this business and we wish him the best as he transitions to his new life beyond Artromick," stated Charles R. Land, Sr. Vice President of Sales for Artromick. "Charlie has always been the consummate professional and everyone throughout this industry will greatly miss his insights, energy, and unique problem-solving aptitude that always ensured a best-of-class solution for healthcare professionals."
