Kevin Muir is the new Vice President, Commercial Operations of Delcath Systems, Inc. The news was announced today.
Kevin Muir was Director of Sales for the Embolics Interventional Oncology business unit of BTG plc where he played a key role in growing that business from $40 million to $180 million at which time BTG was acquired by Boston Scientific.
Gerard Michel, CEO of Delcath, commented, “We are thrilled that Kevin is joining the Delcath team as VP of Commercial Operations. He is a seasoned and accomplished leader with experience across multiple innovative medical technologies with a recent focus in the growing field of interventional oncology. Kevin’s proven ability to both build commercial teams and introduce novel technologies into the marketplace will be a critical asset as we prepare for the launch of HEPZATO upon anticipated FDA approval. His hire is another important step in Delcath’s transition from a development to commercial-stage company.”
Mr. Muir commented, “Delcath’s HEPZATO platform has the potential to make a substantial difference in the lives of the many patients who are suffering from primary or metastatic cancers of the liver. I am joining at an exciting time, with the announcement of topline data from the pivotal FOCUS trial anticipated in early 2021, followed by an expected NDA resubmission and launch in the U.S. in 2022 for the treatment of patients with hepatic dominant metastatic ocular melanoma. I look forward to leading the prelaunch planning and eventual commercialization of HEPZATO, as well as working with the broader team as we expand the platform to treat other tumor types upon execution of further clinical investigations.”
Mr. Muir joins Delcath Systems with 20 years of sales and marketing experience in the biotherapeutics and medical technology industries. Before joining Delcath, Mr. Muir was Director of U.S. Sales for the Interventional Oncology business unit at BTG, where he played a key role in the success of TheraSphere™ (custom ordered micro-embolic 90Y radiation radio isotope-therapy).
Prior to that, he was Director of Sales at ClearFlow Inc. and Aragon Surgical. Mr. Muir also held leadership sales roles at Kensey Nash Corporation, Kyphon, and Genzyme Biosurgery. Prior to his career in industry, Mr. Muir served as a Field Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army. He completed his BS in Management Systems Engineering at the United States Military Academy at West Point where he was a member of the West Point Cadets Football Team.
