Telluride Medical Partners (TMP) is pleased to announce that longtime medical device industry expert and entrepreneur Robert Whirley has joined the TMP Board of Advisors.
“We could not be more thrilled to have Robert Whirley, a medical device leader with 20 years of in-depth medical experience to be part of our Board of Advisors team,” stated Eric Wells, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TMP.
A longtime medical device consultant, Whirley has worked for successful healthcare companies such as Boston Scientific and TriVascular, Inc., and has demonstrated a proven ability to build teams and take products from concept to global commercialization.
“Whirley has worked with leading biotech medical clients to address key challenges in product development, global regulatory compliance, strategic planning and fundraising for medical device and biotech clients ranging from early-stage ventures to established public companies,” Wells says. “He has strong engineering and communication skills with a thorough understanding of U.S. and European clinical trial and regulatory approval processes, the latter of which will be especially valuable when we take our medical devices and technologies abroad.”
