Alongside the outstanding team at GE Healthcare, we anticipate that the business will experience continued global growth under Kieran’s leadership.”
“Kieran has proven to be a natural leader and has been instrumental in the tremendous growth we’ve seen across GE Healthcare Life Sciences,” said Flannery. “I am confident that under his leadership the GE Healthcare team will continue to innovate and execute, introducing new products and driving cost productivity.”
GE Healthcare, a $20 billion business, is the world’s leading manufacturer of medical imaging devices; life sciences tools to enable the next generation of biotherapeutics; medical diagnostic agents that enable personalized medicine; and healthcare IT and software tools to digitize and industrialize the healthcare industry.
