SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iRhythm Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:IRTC), a leading digital healthcare solutions company focused on the advancement of cardiac care, today announced that Dave Vort, the Company’s Chief Commercial Officer, has resigned effective July 25, 2022. To support continued growth and ongoing implementation of iRhythm’s commercial strategy, Mr. Vort will continue to serve the Company as a strategic advisor and actively engage with the Company’s leadership team through March 31, 2023.
“We are grateful to Dave for his many contributions over the past eight and a half years, leading iRhythm from its early commercial days through periods of transformational growth,” said Quentin Blackford, iRhythm’s President and CEO. “Dave was instrumental in building our world-class commercial organization and has played a key role in our ongoing success. We thank Dave for all that he has done for iRhythm and look forward to his continued contributions as a strategic advisor.”
The company also announced that Chad Patterson will join iRhythm’s executive leadership team as its new Chief Commercial Officer, managing the company’s commercial strategy, operations and execution. Mr. Patterson most recently served as Chief Marketing Officer at Dexcom, Inc., where he played a critical role in strategic marketing initiatives to drive revenue growth across multiple geographies.
“As iRhythm expands within its core U.S. markets, into additional international geographies, and into adjacent markets, we are excited to welcome Chad to our executive team. Chad joins us at the perfect time to leverage his experience in driving significant growth in global markets as we look to execute against our renewed corporate strategy.
