In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Hansen Medical Names Robert Cathcart Senior Vice President of Global Sales
Medical Technology Industry Veteran of Nearly 30 Years Has Significant Sales Management Experience in Interventional Cardiology

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Hansen Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced that Robert (Bob) Cathcart has joined the Company in the newly created position of Senior Vice President, Global Sales. Mr. Cathcart will report directly to Bruce Barclay, President and Chief Executive Officer. The creation of this position will allow Hansen Medical to most efficiently execute its global sales strategy.

Mr. Cathcart has nearly 30 years of increasingly senior sales management experience in both domestic and international roles in the medical technology industry with large and small companies. From 2001 to 2009, Mr. Cathcart worked at Datascope Corporation (acquired by Maquet), where he served as the Division President and Vice President of Sales in the Cardiac Assist Division, and later the President of the Interventional Products Division. While leading the Datascope Cardiac Assist Division, Mr. Cathcart led the successful restructuring of the sales organization in 2002, managed a 70 person sales and clinical team and developed a sales training department. During his four year tenure as Division President of Datascope Interventional Products, he helped to launch three new products and drove expansion into Europe and Asia.

"Bob is a strategic leader with extensive commercial and senior management experience in the medical technology industry -- specifically interventional cardiology -- and is a great fit for Hansen Medical," said Bruce Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen Medical. "He has demonstrated success in developing high-performing national and international sales organizations, and delivering growth across multiple product lines, including capital equipment and interventional products. With Bob's global experience and leadership, we will continue to advance our commercial strategy to demonstrate the truly platform-changing capability of intravascular robotics with our Sensei™ and Magellan™ Robotic Systems."

Prior to joining Hansen Medical, Mr. Cathcart served as the Chief Commercial Officer of surgical medical device start-up, HyperBranch Medical Technology, where he was responsible for all sales and marketing in international markets, including Europe, South America and Asia Pacific. Earlier, he served as the President and CEO of FlowCo, Inc./3DT Holdings, a privately-held medical device company focused on interventional cardiology. Mr. Cathcart has also led the sales functions of Promedix Inc., Bard Access Systems and MedChem Products. He began his career at Davis + Geck, where he served as a sales representative, global training manager, regional manager, and eventually area director of the endo-surgery division. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from DePauw University.

"As Hansen Medical's commercial momentum continues to grow, I am pleased to be joining the team at such a critical juncture in the Company's development," said Mr. Cathcart. "I believe that Hansen Medical's intravascular robotic technology offers the clinical and economic value increasingly demanded by physicians and hospitals in today's challenging healthcare environment."

About Hansen Medical, Inc.
Hansen Medical, Inc., based in Mountain View, California, is the global leader in intravascular robotics, developing products and technology designed to enable the accurate positioning, manipulation and control of catheters and catheter-based technologies. The Company's Magellan™ Robotic System, NorthStar™ Robotic Catheter and related accessories, which are intended to facilitate navigation to anatomical targets in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices, have undergone both CE marking and 510(k) clearance and are commercially available in the European Union, and the U.S. In the European Union, the Company's Sensei® X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan Control Catheter are cleared for use during electrophysiology (EP) procedures, such as guiding catheters in the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), and the Lynx® Robotic Ablation Catheter is cleared for the treatment of AF. This robotic catheter system is compatible with fluoroscopy, ultrasound, 3D surface map and patient electrocardiogram data. In the U.S. the Company's Sensei X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan Control Catheter were cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for manipulation and control of certain mapping catheters in EP procedures. In the United States, the Sensei System is not approved for use in guiding ablation procedures; this use remains experimental. The U.S. product labeling therefore provides that the safety and effectiveness of the Sensei X System and Artisan Control Catheter for use with cardiac ablation catheters in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, including AF, have not been established.
