ConforMIS Names New Operations VP
ConforMIS Inc. has named Matthew Scott its new senior vice president of operations. Scott brings more than a decade of experience with medical device manufacturing and operations leadership with Zimmer Orthopedics and Zimmer Dental.
Scott was most recently the director of operations for Zimmer Dental, reporting to the president. There, he supervised all aspects of the operation and managed the rapid growth of the dental implant manufacturing facilities during his tenure. Prior to Zimmer Dental, Scott held various roles at Zimmer Orthopedics, where he started as the production manager for the knee femoral business. His deep familiarity with the production technologies used in orthopedics led to leadership roles on teams responsible for lean process redesign, cost efficiencies, and technology transfer.
Scott was also helped establish a global network of manufacturing facilities to support Zimmer’s hip and knee implant business. He developed the business case for several overseas facilities, planned and executed the build out of the sites, and served as interim general manager of a new production facility in Ireland before moving to Zimmer Dental.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Matthew to the senior team at ConforMIS,” said Philipp Lang, M.D., CEO of ConforMIS. “ConforMIS is building a next generation orthopedics company not just through product design but via a fundamental rethink of the business model. Matthew’s leadership will be integral in scaling up manufacturing to keep up with growth, but also in reengineering our operations to take full advantage of the patient-specific, just-in-time nature of our approach.”
ConforMIS creates customized orthopedic implants and instruments for each patient based on his or her imaging data. The company is based in Bedford, Mass.
“ConforMIS’ high growth and unique business model creates a great environment where you have to deliver, but you also get a chance to be innovative,” said Matt. “I’m thrilled to be joining this team and to have an opportunity to work on such fundamental innovations in orthopedic manufacturing.”
