As President of Stryker Spine, Eric led a team of executives from legacy Stryker Spine and legacy K2M through the integration of these businesses to post acquisition-driven growth. He joined Stryker as part of its 2018 $1.4B acquisition of K2M Group Holdings, Inc.

At K2M, Eric served as the company’s Chairman, President, and CEO, working with a team of strong leaders. Together they grew K2M from an idea to a publicly traded global franchise supporting Orthopedic and Neurosurgeons’ treatment of patients in over 40 countries. From its founding to the ultimate acquisition by Stryker, K2M posted 14 consecutive years of uninterrupted revenue growth.

While leading Stryker Spine, Eric worked with a talented M&A team to acquire sister companies Mobius Imaging and Cardan Robotics for $500M. This strategic initiative also included the integrations of the Stryker Advance Guidance Technologies Business Unit. The combination of these businesses positioned Stryker with a leading imaging, navigation, and robotics platform to support the global Neurosurgical and Orthopedic spine surgeon community.

Prior to founding K2M, Eric founded and served as the President & CEO of American OsteoMedix, Inc. (“AOM”), a pioneering minimally invasive spinal device company. AOM was acquired by Interpore Cross International in 2001. Following the acquisition, Eric served as the President of the Minimally Invasive Division of Interpore Cross International.
