Tom Wright joins Ortho RTi board

Ortho Regenerative Technologies appointed global sports and entertainment veteran, Tom Wright, to the board.

Mr. Wright, in a career spanning more than 35 years, he has led organizations and inspired teams representing world-class brands, including Ultimate Fighting Championship, Canadian Football League, adidas, Salomon, Taylor Made and Spalding.

His expertise includes business strategy development and implementation, general management, sales and marketing, corporate and product branding, operations and governance.

“Having worked with and around athletes for most of my career, I know all too well how devastating a soft tissue sports injury can be if not treated successfully,” Mr. Wright said in a statement.

“Ortho RTi’s product promise is highly attractive and I believe that I can help build awareness, acceptance and adoption as we move forward,” he added.

Dr. Brent Norton, executive chairman and CEO, said Mr. Wright has extensive experience advising companies and a successful record in managing the transformation of high growth, complex organizations.

“That, combined with his well-earned reputation for creativity, drive and integrity, and his strong network of contacts in both amateur and professional sports, should prove to be a tremendous asset to our board and to our shareholders,” he added.
