The Hague, Netherlands – Burlington MA, January 10, 2022 – Cassini, a pioneer in refractive cataract surgery solutions and advanced corneal diagnostics announced today that it has appointed Mark Maire as Chief Executive Officer of Cassini Technologies B.V.
Mark brings a distinguished track record in ophthalmology leadership, commercial success and innovation. He was a driving force behind TrueVision Systems’ innovation including 3D visualization, surgical guidance and connected OR solutions. As Chief Revenue Officer, Mark developed TrueVision’s partner strategy with Alcon (ophthalmology) and Aesculap (neurosurgery/spine) as key strategic partners, which resulted in ultimately selling the ophthalmology assets to Alcon. Following the sale, Mark worked for Alcon as a National Surgical Consultant in 3D visualization and microscopy. He successfully leverages his clinical knowledge as well as extensive KOL network for commercial success, business development and M&A.
Joris Vogels stated, “I am extremely excited with Mark Maire as my successor CEO. I had the pleasure of working with Mark through our partnership with TrueVision, prior to its acquisition by Alcon, and he is perfectly positioned to expand our commercial activities, as well as our strategic partnerships for our exciting technology platform. I very much look forward to remaining involved and working alongside Mark as Strategic Advisor to the company.”
Chairman of the Board and co-founder Jeroen Cammeraat welcomes Mark to the team while concurrently expressing his appreciation for the leadership of Joris Vogels as past CEO. In Jeroen’s reflection on the past achievements and exciting plans, he states, “I want to thank Joris for the past three years as CEO and my co-founder for propelling Cassini to the next phase by building a successful partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision. This partnership, signed three years ago, has resulted in the launch of the Cassini guided femtosecond laser (FLACS) platform with the CATALYS cOS 6.0 software release in 2020 and subsequent global commercialization. Joris, and the Cassini team, should all be extremely proud of this milestone given the resounding positive feedback from leading refractive cataract surgeons and the impressive results which the Cassini technology generates in terms of ease, speed and accuracy for customers and patients.”
Jeroen explains the selection of Mark Maire as the new CEO by adding, “Mark brings the perfect mix of entrepreneurial leadership, combined with domain expertise as well as industry and KOL network. We have come to know Mark very well from our past collaboration with TrueVision before its acquisition by Alcon. His proven track record to successfully commercialize surgical guidance, AR and connected OR technology, which eventually resulted in a successful M&A transaction, makes Mark a perfect match for Cassini.”
