Mainstay Medical Announces Jason Hannon Joins Board of Directors

Mr. Hannon appointed as a Director and begins his role as CEO

Mainstay Medical International plc (“Mainstay” or the “Company”, Euronext Paris: MSTY.PA and ESM of the Irish Stock Exchange: MSTY.IE), a medical device company focused on bringing to market ReActiv8®, an implantable restorative neurostimulation system to treat disabling Chronic Low Back Pain (“CLBP”), announces that following the announcement of his appointment on 5 September, 2017, Mr. Jason Hannon has today taken up his role as CEO and been appointed as a Director of Mainstay.

Mr. Hannon joins Mainstay at a critical time in the Company’s development with the dual focus of commercializing the market-changing ReActiv8 technology in Europe and beyond, while simultaneously completing the global clinical trial in support of submission for FDA approval. 

Mr. Hannon said: “Mainstay has pioneered a new approach to treating chronic low back pain which seeks to help the body repair itself rather than merely masking pain. ReActiv8 is aimed at providing a new therapy for the large number of patients for whom other treatments have failed. I look forward to working with the team to maximize the potential of ReActiv8 globally and build on Mainstay’s technology platform.”

Mr.  Hannon joins Mainstay having most recently served as President and Chief Operating Officer of NuVasive (NASDAQ:NUVA), a leading medical device company focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally-integrated solutions.  During his 12-year tenure at NuVasive, the company’s commercial presence was expanded globally to more than 40 countries and revenue grew from $61M to $962M.
