“Last year, we began an effort to expand the use of Mazor’s core proprietary technology beyond our current indications to further develop our business with the focus on continued growth and innovation. This effort has progressed to the point where a proven business development leader will move our initiatives forward and maximize our opportunities to heal through innovation. Ron Tavlin brings to Mazor an impressive business development track record. He will lead the implementation of our strategies to develop Mazor’s business beyond our current spine focus as we pursue our goal of being the leader in image based medical robotics,” commented Hadomi.
Tavlin has more than 25 years of experience with public and private companies. Prior to joining Mazor, he was a consultant supporting the Medtronic Ventures and Corporate Development teams, with an emphasis on supporting the business development activities in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and AsiaPacific (APAC). Prior to Medtronic, he was the COO of BlueWind Medical, and the co-founder and managing partner of Omega Capital, a private equity fund focused on early stage, middle market, and turnaround opportunities, including medical devices. Tavlin received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the City University of New York, and a Masters of Business Administration degree from Stern School of Business New York University.
