Pulmonx Announces New President and CEO Michael A. Baker to Lead Interventional Pulmonology Company
Date:7/15/2009

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulmonx, an emerging leader in interventional pulmonology and in the development of device therapies for the treatment of emphysema announced today that Michael A. Baker has joined the company as President and CEO and that he has been elected as a member of its board of directors.

"We are very excited that Mike will be leading our company as we begin to commercialize our proprietary medical device therapies for these important indications," said Dr. Rodney Perkins, Founder and Chairman of the Board. "The strategic and leadership skills he has developed over the course of his career will be of great value to Pulmonx."

Mr. Baker's professional career comprises over two decades of executive experience in the medical device industry with much of it directly focused on the development and commercialization of new device technologies and device-based therapies. His career includes assignments with ArthroCare Corporation, where he served as the President and CEO for over 11 years, and with Medtronic, where he served for over 8 years in executive and general management assignments in both the United States and Europe. Mr. Baker holds an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago and a B.S. from the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The addition of Mike Baker follows a series of strategic developments including the receipt of FDA marketing clearance for a key new product and the completion of a successful acquisition. In early July, the company received FDA marketing clearance for the Chartis System, an assessment tool which allows physicians to make regional assessments of lung function, including quantifying inter-lobar airflow in the lungs, known as collateral ventilation. Recent research suggests that the presence of collateral ventilation may have an important impact on the effectiveness of Endobronchial Lung Volu
