VitalPath, a designer and manufacturer of custom, highly complex catheter solutions, announced today that it has named Andrew Holman as its new chief executive  officer. Holman brings 28 years of medical device experience to VitalPath and its customers, including  leadership positions at both contract manufacturers and OEMs and deep knowledge of complex  catheter-based devices. 

Most recently, Holman was the chief commercial officer at Prytime Medical Devices, where he helped  bring to market a novel balloon catheter for the trauma space. Previously, he was president of QMD, a  $170 million global medical device outsourcing company specializing in end-to-end services for  cardiology, vascular, endosurgical and critical care devices. Prior to that, he spent more than four years  as chief commercial officer at Integer, which manufactures critical components for implantable pulse  generators, vascular access devices, complex catheters, orthopedics implants and instruments, portable  medical power solutions and energy applications. His early career included leadership roles at OEMs  including Smith+Nephew, Johnson & Johnson and Boston Scientific. 

Holman’s initial focus is on executing VitalPath’s strategic plan to drive profitable growth and to further  integrate the company’s four Minneapolis-area facilities. “Andrew’s catheter experience in both the  OEM and contract manufacturing spaces will serve VitalPath extremely well,” said Aliya Khaydarova, a  VitalPath board member and managing principal at Inverness Graham, the majority owner of VitalPath.  “Andrew brings the kind of customer-first mentality that will benefit VitalPath customers immensely.  The combination of this customer-centric leadership and our leading engineering, design-center, and  manufacturing capabilities will facilitate expansion with current and new customers.” 

“I’m honored and excited to take the helm at VitalPath,” Holman said. “I’ve had the opportunity to  spend time at each of our four facilities, and I’m impressed with both the level of technical expertise in  developing complex catheters and the level of commitment to meeting customer needs that I’ve seen  across the board. I’m proud to be joining this team and look forward to working with everyone to guide  our customers through their complex catheter projects, from start to finish.” 

In 2022, VitalPath worked through industry-related supply chain challenges to ship products to serve its customers and support more than 500,000 patient procedures. With a new state-of-the art Design  Center in New Hope, Minn., and increased supply chain stability, VitalPath is poised to serve an even  greater number of customers leveraging its engineering services and operational capabilities.
