Avita Medical Names Troy Barring COO, Ross Saunders VP Of Sales And Marketing

Regenerative medicine company Avita Medical Limited (AVMXY) announced Monday the appointment of Troy Barring as Chief Operating Officer, and a Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Barring will be based at the Company's Northridge, CA office.

Barring assumes the COO position from Tim Rooney, who held both COO and CFO roles. Rooney will now be fully focused on his CFO duties.

Further, Andy Quick has been promoted to Senior Vice President Clinical Development, in recognition of his success in managing relations with BARDA and running Avita's clinical programme.

Avita's new Vice President of Sales and Marketing is Ross Saunders, who has a 19-year track record with Johnson & Johnson in the international sales, marketing and general management of medical devices for wound treatment. Saunders will be based in the UK for Avita.

The company noted that Barring has a particular brief to support the implementation of Avita's $53.9 million contract with BARDA, a US federal agency that prepares for potential disasters. Barring will oversee the plan to strengthen regulatory, quality, and supply chain functions. He will also manage other key operational aspects of the Company.

Avita's new COO has held senior positions within medical device businesses of Baxter, Johnson & Johnson and North American Scientific Medical.

The company, which specializes in new treatments for wounds and skin defects, said the new positions would bolster the company's plans as it commercialises its medical devices in various international markets, and works towards an FDA approval and launch in the US.
