Opsens Loses Director, Gains VP

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Lucien Goffart has resigned as director of fiber optic sensors firm Opsens Inc.

"As part of the progression of his career, Mr. Goffart is now involved in projects that are incompatible with his director's responsibilities at Opsens," the company said in a statement.

President and CEO Louis Laflamme thanked Goffart "for the quality of his advice in the development and execution of our business strategy."

Meanwhile, Tony Gibbons has been hired as Opsens' new vice president of sales and marketing.

Gibbons will be responsible for the global commercialization plan for Opsens' fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement products. FFR is a technique used in coronary catheterization to measure pressure difference across a coronary artery stenosis.

Gibbons spent 20 years with Boston Scientific Corp. in various leadership roles including intercontinental president and international sales vice president. He was previously the international vice president of Thoratec Corp. He has a bachelor’s degree in science with majors in economics and marketing.

"I am very pleased to join Opsens at this defining moment for the company," Gibbons said. "The recent receipt of regulatory approval in the United States and the anticipated move into a new state-of-the-art facility will allow Opsens to ramp up production and grab market shares."

Earlier this month, the company announced it would spin off its industrial fiber sensors division. The newly created Opsens Solutions Inc. will concentrate on the oil and gas industry.
