Proximie, the global health tech platform digitising operating rooms around the world, has appointed a new GM for the Americas, and a chief growth officer, amid ongoing expansion.
Charlie H. Wilhelm joins as GM for the Americas, bringing vast industry experience and expertise.
Most recently, he was the president and COO of KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America – where he approached US$1bn of business and closed a record year in 2021.
He is “skilled at developing corporate strategies to successfully promote profitability, business growth and increased market share”, Proximie said.
Dave Herrmann joins as chief growth officer and will play a central role in driving the company’s growth opportunities with new products, services, and verticals.
Previously, he was the global head of digital solutions for Johnson & Johnson Medtech, and CEO of SaaS company C-SATS.
He was also a member of the founding leadership team at Verb Surgical, before the company was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in early 2020.
The appointments follow Proximie’s high-profile partnership with Teledoc Health in October 2021, and Vodafone Business, announced in January 2022, aimed at increasing access to surgical healthcare and training.
Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, CEO and founder of Proximie, said: “We are delighted to welcome Charlie and Dave to Proximie’s leadership team. They will be key to continuing our momentum and accelerated growth over the next 12 months. It’s testament to our strategy that we’re continuing to attract such deeply talented and experienced individuals, and they have joined at a particularly exciting time for Proximie.
“The proven track-records of Charlie and Dave bring a material value add to Proximie and will help us achieve our mission to create a future of truly connected surgical care. Charlie will be vital to our growth in the Americas, where we already have a considerable presence. Dave will play a key role in leading our partnership strategy and supporting our overall platform growth. They are the perfect additions at the perfect time.”
Charlie H. Wilhelm said: “I am thrilled to join Proximie as General Manager for the Americas. Nadine’s vision of being in every OR in the world and positively impacting patient care strongly resonates. I am excited to contribute to the team and grow Proximie to achieve this bold vision with our customers.”
Dave Herrmann added: “I’m excited about the tremendous growth potential for Proximie. We have an exciting product with our market-leading solution and I see a huge opportunity to build upon this to truly digitize the surgical environment, to bring new tools and technologies to clinical teams and improve patient care.”
