Perminova, developer of web-based software for the nation’s leading cardiology centers, announced that Michael K. Perry has joined the Perminova Board of Advisors.
With over 25 years of leadership experience in the medical technology industry, Perry is currently Chief Executive Officer and Director of CRISI Medical Systems, a San Diego-based medical technology company that develops innovative medication management products designed to make the delivery of intravenous drugs safer, more accurate and more cost-effective.
“Mike is a very innovative entrepreneur in medical technology industries, with particular insight in the field of cardiology,” said Perminova President and CEO Craig Collins. “His experiences in leading companies from start-up to success will provide invaluable help to Perminova as a high-growth technology company.”
From 1998 to 2009, Perry was CEO and Director of CardioDynamics, the innovator of a new measurement technology to noninvasively access a patient’s cardiac performance. Perry successfully built the public company from zero revenue to a $41 million profitable business before it was sold to SonoSite, Inc. In 2003, Perry was named San Diego Entrepreneur of the Year for Medical Products and Technology.
Prior to CardioDynamics, he was Vice President of Operations and Vice President for Research and Development at Pyxis Corporation. Pyxis Corporation was a pioneer of healthcare automation and information management services, in addition to pharmacy management services to hospitals and outpatient facilities. Perry was part of the executive team that successfully acquired and integrated three businesses into Pyxis, and in 1996 sold the company to Cardinal Health, Inc.
Before joining Pyxis, Perry served in several management assignments with Hewlett-Packard’s Medical Products Group in manufacturing and finance. Additionally, he was Director of Quality for a division of Hewlett-Packard’s DeskJet Printer Group.
Perry holds an MBA from Harvard University and a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from General Motors Institute. Perry serves as an Executive Committee member of the Advisory Board of the UC San Diego Cardiovascular Center. He and his wife, Karilyn, are among the founding families of Pacific Ridge School, an independent school in Carlsbad, California.
