The top executive of Raumedic is moving from Germany to Mills River, where he will oversee a new marketing push in the medical technology market.

Martin Bayer, until recently sole board member of Raumedic AG, was appointed chairman of the entire group in February. He moved his office to North America, where he will be serving as president and CEO of Raumedic Inc. in Mills River. After completing the construction of an administration and production building in North Carolina, the company with Bavarian roots now is looking to quickly establish itself on the world’s largest medical technology market, while pursuing a globally consistent market cultivation strategy.

“I look forward to devoting myself to this task, and being on site will provide me with the best conditions,” Bayer, 56, said in a news release. Under Bayer’s leadership the medical technology company has more than doubled its sales the past 10 years, growing the number of employees from 360 to over 700 worldwide. Given this growth and his new office in the U.S., Bayer points out how crucial it is that collaboration with his colleagues in Germany continues to run smoothly. To ensure this, regular video conferences with the Helmbrechts headquarters have already been scheduled.

Additionally, Martin Schenkel, a seasoned member of management, was newly appointed as member of the board of Raumedic AG. As chief operating officer, Schenkel is responsible for production at all Raumedic sites. In his new role, he is now also the man in charge of the company headquarters, reporting to Bayer. In the process of reorganization, the management team of Raumedic AG will be further expanded in the next months.
