Toshiba America Medical Systems said Tuesday it named ex-Siemens executive Donald L. Fowler general manager and senior vice president.
In his new position, Fowler will oversee Toshiba's U.S. multi-modality business. Toshiba's U.S. medical business, headquartered in Tustin, Calif., sells X-ray, CT, ultrasound and MRI equipment.
Fowler most recently served as vice president of MR business unit with Siemens Healthcare. He has been with Siemens in various positions since at least 2002, according to his LinkedIn page.
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
"His multi-functional, multi-modality experience, as well as his history leading a $2.5 billion dollar business, make him a great fit for this position," said Toshiya Miyaguchi, president of Toshiba America Medical Systems, in a statement.
