Chief Executive Officer
Gordie Nye joined Angel Medical Systems in July 2020 as our new CEO. He is an 8-time CEO in a range of businesses from sporting goods to a wide variety of medical devices. Gordie has turned around and sold two
private equity-backed former divisions of Johnson & Johnson (“A” Company Orthodontics and Critikon). For almost seventeen years, Gordie was an angel investor, interim CEO, and Board member of REVA Medical, a resorbable stent business. He was also the CEO of ZELTIQ (makers of CoolSculpting) who created the commercial vision, executed the global launch, and took the company public.
With a strong background in marketing, branding, strategy, and sales, Gordie is set to lead Angel Medical Systems as we commercialize the AngelMed Guardian. It will be crucial to edify multiple target audiences – patients, cardiologists, general practitioners, hospital systems, and payers as to the compelling, unique advantages of the Guardian. Our credo “it’s about time” will unify our message across these audiences.
Gordie earned his AB from Dartmouth and his MBA from Amos Tuck School. He and his wife Kathleen are the proud parents of three daughters – Molly, Lulu, and Poppy.
