Following on the heels of FDA 510(k) clearance of the company's first two products, the Universal Circumcision Clamp and the Universal Surgical Mesh, GMD has completed the final stage of market preparation by hiring a highly experienced and motivated sales team charged with introducing low-cost, high-quality generic devices to the domestic healthcare system.

Adams, Bingham, and Bisceglia bring a combined 88 years of healthcare sales experience to support the launch of the generic medical device industry.
"With FDA clearance of our first two products, domestic healthcare organizations are showing growing interest in GMD and we are excited about the opportunity to provide generic devices to new customers," said Ron Bromfield, vice president of Sales and Marketing. "Bruno, Rick and Gerard are all highly qualified, motivated sales executives with direct experience selling into the urology market. The Field Sales Team is critical to helping communicate GMD's goal of providing efficacious, low-cost surgical devices to a domestic healthcare system in dire need of fiscal reform. We anticipate that their addition to our experienced team will drive rapid and successful adoption of generic devices."
