Angel Medical Systems appoints device expert as chief commercial officer

Eatontown-based Angel Medical Systems appointed Mike Gillem as chief commercial officer, responsible for the direction and management of all sales and marketing activities for the Guardian System, the company’s cardiac monitoring product.

“We are excited to have Mike as part of the AngelMed executive team. Mike will be instrumental in our goals to accomplish key milestones in the launch of the Guardian, as well as building a sales force for the future,” said Brad Snow, CEO. “Mike’s leadership and broad experience of launching disruptive technologies will be key to establishing a strong foundation, systems and processes with a scalability that exceeds expectations.”

Gillem brings more than 29 years of medical device experience in cardiology and orthopedics serving in various sales and sales leadership roles. Prior to joining AngelMed, he served as chief commercial officer for McGinley Orthopedics, where he helped introduce new, innovative technology to orthopedic surgeons and hospitals globally.

Gillem has also held several senior level positions bringing new products to the marketplace and driving clinical adoption. Most notably was his early involvement with Foxhollow Technologies. His field execution and management leadership resulted in an explosive revenue ramp from zero revenue to over $150 million in revenue in under two years.
