Medtronic CEO visits Israel

Omar Ishrak heads a delegation of senior executives who will become acquainted with Medtronics recent acquisitions – Mazor Robotics, Nutrino and Visionsense.

Medtronic chairperson and CEO Omar Ishrak today arrived in Israel for a visit at the head of a delegation of Medtronic executives, including EVP and restorative therapy groups president Geoffrey Martha, responsible for the acquisition of Israeli company Mazor Robotics for $1.64 billion.

Medtronic is the world’s largest medical devices company, with $30 billion in annual revenue. Ishrak, who has headed the company since 2011, is a charismatic and an unusual CEO who stands out even among the CEOs of very large companies. The company’s results during his term at the helm have been excellent.

Ishrak’s current visit is aimed at celebrating and getting more thoroughly acquainted with Medtronic’s recent acquisitions, especially the huge (by Israeli standards) acquisition of Mazor; Nutrino, acquired for nearly $100 million; and Visionsense, acquired at a company value of $75 million.
