GS Medical USA Announces Executive Leadership Changes and 2013 Sales Growth

NEW ORLEANS, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GS Medical USA, LLC (GSM), a manufacturer and global supplier of spinal implants, instrumentation, and developer of innovative surgical solutions, today announced changes in its executive leadership team to carry forward the company's plan for continued profitability and year-over-year double-digit growth.

SK Hong will lead GSM's International Sales, and will serve a dual role in managing the company's U.S. business as Vice President of Operations. To sharpen GSM's strategic initiatives, and drive new sales growth across the company, Mark Cohen has been named Vice President of Sales for the U.S.  Joseph Jin has been named Interim Executive Vice President, and will focus on aligning sales and marketing directives within the Americas. These leadership changes are effective immediately.

"GS Medical is well-positioned to capitalize on the strength and experience of a highly capable leadership team to support the further development of our organization and efforts within the U.S. and Americas," said James Shin, CEO of GS Medical Co, Ltd. and GS Medical USA, LLC. "These changes will have a positive impact on our long-term plans for continued profitable growth, greater productivity, and geographic expansion."

GSM also announced the company's year-end financials, including a double-digit revenue growth over FY'12. GSM attributes the strong growth to new product launch cycles, product extensions, and new distribution partnerships. GSM's fiscal growth is also partly attributed to the launch of the company's AnyPlus® MIS NX, a percutaneous spinal fixation system designed and manufactured in the U.S. 

"We are committed to building out the MIS platform, and technologically advanced instrumentation and processes as it relates to this increasingly efficacious surgical approach," said Mr. Cohen.  "Additionally, GSM is continuing its investment in an on-going education initiative by hosting quarterly cadaveric MIS training in international locales such as Thailand this June, and in other Asia-Pacific markets, and two MIS Bio Skills Labs in the U.S. later this year."

"GSM is in a strong position to achieve greater market share in the U.S.," said Mr. Jin. "In line with GS Medical Co., Ltd., based in South Korea, which has achieved worldwide recognition in the spinal implant market since 1990, our strategic initiative is aimed at delivering and expanding a number of high-quality surgical solutions for the neurosurgery and orthopedic markets in North America."

GSM will showcase specialty instruments, line extensions to the AnyPlus® MIS NX system, and its full portfolio this week, March 12-15, at the AAOS Annual Meeting (booth #3734) at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, and at the AANS Annual Scientific Meeting (booth #1138) in San Francisco, at Moscone Center, April 5-9, 2014.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
