His legacy will be substantial, and we wish him continued personal growth in his retirement.”
Mr. Soderberg continued: “Dan comes to us after 12 years with Integra LifeSciences, where he currently serves as EVP and President of Codman Specialty Surgical, Integra’s largest business. He led Integra’s acquisition and integration of Johnson & Johnson’s Codman Neurosurgery business, combining it with Integra’s neurosurgery business to create a $1 billion leader in neurosurgery. Previously, as Corporate Vice President and President of International from 2013 to 2016, Dan was responsible for Integra’s $200 million business outside the United States. Dan joined Integra in 2008 as Vice President of Marketing and Product Development in the Surgical Instruments business and was promoted to President of the Acute Surgical business in 2010.
