Medical-tech company Stryker Corp. said Tuesday it has named Timothy Scannell president and chief operating officer, effective Aug. 1.
The company is making the change as David Floyd, group president, orthopaedics, is retiring on June 30, 2019. Scannell started his career with Stryker’s endoscopy business in 1990, serving in sales and marketing roles.
For almost a decade, he has been group president, recently overseeing medsurg and neurotechnology. Stryker shares were not active premarket, but have gained 12% in 2018, while the S&P 500 has gained 4%.
