Other key members of the team include Tony Hermes, global director of sales, Joe Lamkin, global director of business development, and Carly Panchura, MPH, global director of marketing.

"We are thrilled to have a best in class team dedicated to our Systems Integration initiative. Our combined excellent experience, work ethic, and creativity will drive our success in quickly building this new, strategically powerful capability that will allow us to offer a fully integrated product portfolio to hospitals and health systems across our lines of business," said Bream. "Ultimately, the realization of our Systems Integration business will allow our providers to better integrate all imaging technologies while further solidifying Fujifilm's healthcare technology leadership position."

Fujifilm expects its SI business to officially launch the first quarter of 2020. The company's portfolio will be targeted to enterprise-wide providers including general ORs, hybrid ORs, and all interventional specialties including gastrointestinal.
