Pugh brings over 20 years of medical device industry expertise to his new role and boasts a proven track record of driving strategic expansion and growth. His most recent role at Theragenics was as President of the OEM Group, where he oversaw the company's design and contract manufacturing services and its subsidiaries – Arrotek Medical, Galt Medical, and NeedleTech.
