FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartWare International, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTWR; ASX: HIN), a leading innovator of less invasive, miniaturized circulatory support technologies that are revolutionizing the treatment of advanced heart failure, today announced the appointment of Peter F. McAree as Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, effective immediately.  Mr. McAree most recently was Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Caliper Life Sciences, Inc., prior to the company's acquisition by PerkinElmer, Inc. in November, 2011. 

"Peter brings to HeartWare extensive strategic leadership experience in life sciences, helping to direct numerous acquisitions during his tenure at Caliper, expand the Company's product portfolio and oversee Caliper's financial operations during its rapid growth and ascent toward profitability," said Doug Godshall, President and Chief Executive Officer of HeartWare.  "As we seek to commercialize the HeartWare® Ventricular Assist System as a bridge to heart transplant in the United States, we are confident that Peter will play an integral role in helping lead HeartWare through our next stage of commercial and organizational growth."

Mr. McAree has more than 25 years of financial management and public accounting experience.  Mr. McAree served as Chief Financial Officer of Zymark prior to the company's merger with Caliper in 2003.  During his eight years with Caliper, Mr. McAree served as Vice President of Finance and Treasurer before being promoted to CFO in 2008.  Having also served in financial leadership positions in other industries, Mr. McAree began his career with Arthur Andersen LLP, Boston, where he held various positions over nearly a decade, most recently as Senior Manager, Enterprise Group in 1995.  McAree is a Certified Public Accountant in Massachusetts. 

"We wish to recognize and express gratitude to Lauren Farrell, Vice President of Finance, who provided excellent stewardship during the past six months," added Mr. Godshall.  "The board and I value Lauren's many contributions and look forward to her continued leadership in finance as HeartWare continues to grow and the scope of our financial management and reporting expands and increases in complexity."
