Prior, he was the director of compliance at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
"Steve has a blend of experience in both regulatory affairs and client-focused consultation. He's someone who truly understands the intricacies and complexities of our industry but also has experience working with clients to support their needs and deliver results. We're glad to bring him on board," said Scott Whitaker, president and CEO of AdvaMed.
