AtriCure Appoints Shlomi Nachman to the Board of Directors

AtriCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATRC), a leading innovator in surgical treatments and therapies for atrial fibrillation (Afib), left atrial appendage (LAA) management and post-operative pain management, today announced it appointed Shlomi Nachman to its Board of Directors. Mr. Nachman’s long and distinguished career in the medical device industry has placed him at the forefront of new market development and growth, serving most recently as Company Group Chairman within Johnson & Johnson’s Medical Devices business.

Mr. Nachman has over 25 years of experience in the medical device industry and is currently on the board of several private medical device companies, as well as the Arnold and Mable Beckman Foundation, a foundation focused on supporting research in chemistry and life sciences. Previously, he held senior operating roles at Johnson & Johnson, where he was the Company Group Chairman of Cardiovascular and Specialty Solutions and Vision Groups within Johnson & Johnson’s Medical Devices business. He was a member of the Medical Devices Group Operating Committee and led a diverse portfolio of six medical device businesses including Electrophysiology, Neurovascular Intervention, Ear, Nose & Throat, Breast Aesthetics, Optometry and Ophthalmology. Prior to that, Mr. Nachman served in various roles with increased scope and responsibilities, including Worldwide President of Biosense Webster and Cordis.

“I am thrilled to be joining the AtriCure Board during this exciting time of accelerating growth and profitability,” said Mr. Nachman. “I have had a front-row seat in witnessing the incredible growth of the Afib treatment market. That said, there is an abundance of untapped opportunity and AtriCure is at the forefront of treating a segment of the market that includes patients who are significantly underserved. I have done extensive diligence on the company’s business, prospects, and end user markets, and believe them to be significantly underpenetrated. During my time at Biosense Webster, I got to know the unique challenges that clinicians face in treating long-standing persistent Afib, for patients both with and without underlying structural heart disease. The unique combination of world-class products, and a foundation of clinical science to support safety and efficacy, has the company poised to continue its leadership position and execute on a long runway of growth.”

“I am thrilled that Shlomi has joined the Board of Directors,” said Michael Carrel, President and CEO of AtriCure. “He is one of the most well-respected leaders in the medical device space, having led Johnson & Johnson’s medical device business through a period of unprecedented growth. His experience in the Afib market will be invaluable as we continue our mission of healing the lives of those affected by this global epidemic.”
