MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR) today announced the appointment of Paul Marr as Executive Vice President of Sales for North America in conjunction with the expansion of its US sales force to 50 representatives.
Expansion of the US sales force to 50 representatives has been timed to address the Company's mounting market opportunity for its robust portfolio of molecular diagnostic tests for urology, including its lead product ConfirmMDx®, its new SelectMDx(TM) liquid biopsy test, and its recently launched liquid biopsy bladder cancer test, AssureMDx(TM). Following the inclusion of ConfirmMDx in the NCCN guidelines in 2016, the recent award of the Government Services Agreement in 2017 and in preparation for the effective date of the unique CPT billing code in 2018, the Company will be well-positioned to drive broader market adoption and revenue growth. Additionally, with a large and growing customer base, SelectMDx and AssureMDx are expected to gain rapid market adoption, so the expanded sales force will enable increased frequency of client visits to drive and support growth.
Mr. Marr is a senior healthcare executive with more than 20 years of sales leadership experience in clinical diagnostics. Most recently he served as Vice President of Sales, North America at Beckman Coulter, a Danaher Company. Previously, Mr. Marr has served in senior leadership positions in several multi-national diagnostic companies, including Hologic, Gen-Probe, Leica Biosystems, Bayer Diagnostics and Siemens Healthcare where he consistently achieved revenue growth. Mr. Marr started his career serving 8 years in the United States Navy, concluding his service as a Naval Special Operations Officer.
"This is a remarkable success story, with an impressive portfolio of best-in-class proprietary molecular diagnostic products, MDxHealth has established itself as a market leading brand in the field of urology," stated Paul Marr, EVP of Sales, MDxHealth. "The management team has built a solid foundation, so I am excited to help the Company capitalize during this new phase of growth."
