CorVent Medical announced today that it appointed Jeremy Nelson as its new chief operating officer (COO).

Fargo, North Dakota-based CorVent says Nelson brings nearly 20 years of operational experience to the role. His expertise comes across supply chain, manufacturing, engineering and automation. He will be based at CorVent’s Fargo office.

“We are excited to add Jeremy to our outstanding executive team at CorVent. Jeremy’s proven expertise in operations, supply chain and quality will be instrumental as we build and expand operations in Fargo North Dakota–transitioning from a startup to a commercial medical device company,” said Richard Walsh, CorVent Medical CEO.

Walsh called Nelson “a key asset” as the company moves into its new 15,000-square-foot headquarters.

Nelson joins CorVent having collected experience at Smith+Nephew, Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Zimmer Biomet. His past roles range across operations, most recently culminating in the VP of operations and supply chain position at Exactech.

During his career, Nelson held leadership positions in product and manufacturing engineering and electrical and embedded code-firmware engineering. He also had positions in quality and continuous improvement initiatives.

“I am committed to developing a world-class medical device quality and operations team by implementing best-in-class systems and processes in support of the company’s vision for simple, sophisticated respiratory solutions for post-ICU and home environments,” said Nelson. “I look forward to collaborating with our team to maximize CorVent Medical’s value for all of our stakeholders by developing the winning combination of our people, processes and systems locally producing and globally distributing simple-sophisticated respiratory products.”
