MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyRemedy, Inc., a manufacturer of point-of-care robotic systems for the fabrication and tracking of customized, nano-material-based wound treatments, has hired Gary Coughlen to serve as the Company's chief financial officer. Coughlen joined the PolyRemedy management team on October 14, 2008, and reports directly to the Company's president and chief executive officer Dan Eckert.

"We are pleased to have Gary on board. Gary is a seasoned professional with more than 20 years of experience in finance, much of it in the medical device setting," Eckert says.

While there, he helped raise $42 million in equity capital and $8 million in non-bank debt financing, and he managed the company banking relationship. Coughlen oversaw the company's growth from 3 to 75 employees, and helped transition the company from its R&D stages to commercialization of its product after FDA approval.
