Siemens Healthcare names Sorensen CEO
Siemens Healthcare markets medical imaging equipment, laboratory diagnostics tools, hearing aids and health information technology. Its U.S. headquarters are in Malvern, Pa., where Sorensen will be based.
Sorensen, 49, most recently held positions as a professor of radiology and health sciences and technology at Harvard Medical School, a faculty member at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, and a co-director of the A.A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, according to a news release.
He will replace Randy Hill, Siemens Healthcare's chief operating officer, who has served as an interim leader since April 2010, when the healthcare division's former CEO, Michael Reitermann, moved to a new role as the CEO of Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, a spokesperson said.
Sorensen reports to Eric Spiegel, CEO of Siemens in the U.S.
