Novelli joins MDMA after serving on the US Senate Committee on Finance for Senator Charles Grassley from 2003 to 2007. At the Committee, Novelli worked on several areas directly affecting the medical device and pharmaceutical industries including reimbursement, drug and device safety and approval, and fraud and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

At MDMA, Novelli will work on a number of critical issues facing the industry, including timely and adequate reimbursement, efficient FDA reviews, and open market access.

"Novelli has a unique perspective of the medical device industry given his time working on the Senate Committee on Finance. His efforts will help ensure that the voice of innovative, entrepreneurial medical technology companies is well represented in Washington," said Joe Kiani, Chairman & CEO of Masimo Corp. and MDMA Board Chairman.

"Tom's experience on the Hill, dealing with a variety of issues directly impacting the medical technology industry, will be a tremendous asset to MDMA and its members," said Mark Leahey, MDMA Executive Director.

Novelli received his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Dayton, and Master of Arts in policy from The Catholic University of America.
