Darby brings almost 20 years of experience in the medical device industry to the role, with most of those years in the interventional cardiology space. He comes to MEDRAD from AGA Medical Corporation, where he most recently served as senior vice president of Global Marketing and Distributor Sales, gaining deep experience in the field of the structural heart. Prior to AGA, Darby spent over 15 years at Cordis, a Johnson & Johnson company, starting as an angiographic sales representative. His leadership ability, sales/marketing acumen and international experience ultimately resulted in his role as vice president of commercial operations and global stent marketing.
