Tecomet Appoints New President and CEO

Tecomet, reportedly the largest contract manufacturer catering to the orthopaedic industry, has appointed Mark Kemp to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer.

Kemp brings a wealth of medical device experience to this new role. Previously, he spent 16 years with Flextronics in progressively responsible roles, most recently serving as President Flextronics Medical. Kemp has over 20 years of experience with M&A and integration activity and has grown a medical division from $200MM to $1.8BB; this included securing strategic partnerships with 19 of the top 25 medical OEMs.

“Mark has provided a new outlook and a refreshing prospective by providing guidance and overall leadership for our company since joining Tecomet in October 2015. The Board is very pleased to have Mark with Tecomet and now stepping up to the CEO role,” stated Bill Dow, Chairman of the Board.

In 2015, Tecomet reported organic growth at an excess of ten percent over the previous six years. In addition, the company said that it would continue its acquisition activity moving forward, with a plan to specifically target companies offering services that Tecomet currently outsources.
