The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements.

April 7, 2017

Robert DeRyke has been appointed President and CEO of Terumo Cardiovascular (CV) Group effective April 1, 2017, following the retirement of long-time President and CEO Mark Sutter.

In this position, Robert DeRyke will lead Terumo’s global business related to the cardiopulmonary bypass market including Terumo Cardiovascular Systems (CVS), CV Group’s operating company in the United States.

Prior to this appointment, Robert DeRyke served as President of Terumo CV Group’s Electromechanical (EM) Systems Division. “Under his leadership, Rob brought stability and improved profitability to the business,” said Shinjiro Sato, President and CEO of Terumo Corporation, Terumo CV Group’s parent company.

DeRyke takes lead of a company with deep expertise in the cardiac arena, well positioned for the future.

“We have a strong foundation of talent, technologies, and systems to build on as we deliver long-term value to our customers and their patients,” said Robert DeRyke.

Terumo CV Group is building momentum that will create a positive impact for healthcare providers and the critically ill patients they serve.  Having recently cleared the shipping restrictions imposed as a condition of its 2011 consent decree, the company is preparing to return its flagship Terumo® Advanced Perfusion System 1 heart-lung machine to market in June 2017. As a market leader in oxygenators and cardiac monitoring technologies, Terumo CV Group will introduce its newest CAPIOX® oxygenator and CDI® inline blood gas monitoring system later this year, reinforcing the company’s commitment to the global cardiac community.

DeRyke joined Terumo in 2012 as Vice President of Corporate Quality for Terumo CVS. He has over 25 years’ experience in medical devices and pharmaceuticals, and has held executive leadership positions for Baxter Healthcare, Hospira, and Thermo-Fisher Scientific. He holds a Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Western Michigan University.
