Cloar will be succeeding Dan Williamson, founder of Aspen Medical Products, who will continue to be involved as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors and as a meaningful shareholder.

“I see Aspen Medical Products as the leader in spinal bracing products both within the US, and internationally, and welcome the opportunity to take this dynamic company from its history of innovation, quality and customer-focused product delivery to the next level of its evolution of growth and success,” Cloar stated upon accepting the position. “With the seasoned and dynamic executive team, well respected direct sales group, stellar relationships with key distributors, a culture of inclusion and commitment, and aggressive plans for organic growth through new product development and add-on acquisitions, the Company’s future is very bright which was extremely attractive to me.”

Dan Williamson has been, and will continue to be, a great partner as he transitions to Board level involvement. We are excited to have someone with Jim Cloar’s experience and leadership capabilities as part of the team, and look forward to working with both of them to enable Aspen Medical Products to achieve continued success, while providing quality products to those who need them,” said Jeff Lipsitz, Co-President at Cortec.
