Medical device and packaging supplier Comar has named Brian Larkin as its new president and CEO, as longtime company leader Mike Ruggieri will transition to chairman.
Ruggieri served as Comar’s CEO for 15 years.
“Brian is the right leader for Comar,” Ruggieri said in a Sept. 29 statement. “Brian’s extensive background in the health care industry combined with his innate business development skills should help Comar strengthen partnerships, develop strategic alliances, and expand our international sales presence.”
