Milestone Scientific appoints executive VP

Livingston-based Milestone Scientific Inc., a developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provide painless and precise injections, announced it has appointed Sharon L. Smith its new executive vice president of global sales and marketing. 

Prior to Mileston Scientific, she was the sales and marketing consultant for an artificial intelligence/deep machine learning software platform. Previously, she was vice president of sales and marketing for Rivanna Medical LLC. She also served as a consultant to a venture capital firm and emerging breast imaging companies. She’s held senior sales and marketing roles with medical device companies, including Gamma Medica Inc., Aurora Imaging Technology Inc., Naviscan PET Systems Inc., Hologic Inc. and Proctor & Gamble.

“We are pleased to welcome Sharon to the senior management team. She brings an extensive medical device background, a successful track record commercializing new products, as well as deep industry relationships — especially within the anesthesia and imaging markets,” said Leonard Osser, interim CEO of Milestone Scientific.

“Having devoted most of my career to medical device sales, especially within the anesthesia and imaging markets, there is a significant unmet need for Milestone’s epidural medical instrument. I also see enormous benefits for extensions of this platform technology across multiple indications such as cosmetic and intra-articular injections. Our immediate focus is accelerating the commercial roll-out the epidural medical instrument. Towards this end, we will be partnering with new distributors for the epidural medical instrument both in the U.S. and abroad,” Smith said.
