"Don has served on Checkpoint Surgical's board for two years, gaining strong admiration for our products and our team," said Len Cosentino, Checkpoint Surgical president and CEO. "In his new role with us, Don is rolling up his sleeves, lending his tremendous experience and expertise to help us continue growing the company in the U.S and abroad."

In both 2005 and 2010, Mr. Hubbard received the DMSE Sales Executive of the Year Award for Northern Ohio. Prior to joining PartsSource, Hubbard served as Vice President of Operations for Agency Rent-A-Car and Vice President of Sales for Spirit Rent-A-Car Agency.  He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and Economics from the University of Michigan.

Mr. Hubbard will oversee sales growth of Checkpoint Surgical flagship product, the CHECKPOINT® Stimulator/Locator, a state-of-the-art intraoperative neuroprotective stimulator that helps surgeons locate, identify and evaluate nerve and muscle excitability during surgery to facilitate nerve preservation and repair. CHECKPOINT® recently received the CE mark and has launched commercial sales overseas.

There are more than 2 million annual surgeries in the U.S. alone where nerve damage is a major risk, representing an annual global revenue opportunity in excess of $500 million. Checkpoint Surgical was founded in 2009 in Cleveland, Ohio, and CHECKPOINT® received FDA clearance in the U.S. in October 2009.

In 2010, the company launched U.S. sales of the CHECKPOINT® which is now used in a wide range of nerve repair, ENT, orthopaedic, plastic reconstructive, and oncological surgical procedures at many of the nation's premier hospitals.

"I'm thrilled to be working with the team at Checkpoint Surgical," said Don Hubbard. "There's great interest in CHECKPOINT® from distributors, surgeons and major health systems in the U.S. and overseas, and I look forward to putting it in their hands."
