Masimo Corp. (Nasdaq: MASI), an Irvine-based medical device maker, today named Blair Tripodi as its chief operating officer for its new consumer division.
Tripodi previously was the chief commercial officer at Sound United, a maker of sound equipment that Masimo bought earlier this year.
“Blair’s leadership, history, and extensive background in marketing, sales, and consumer products will position Masimo’s consumer business, including the coming consumer health products, for optimal growth,” Chief Executive Joe Kiani said in a statement.
The unit’s prior leader, President Kevin Duffy, departed in August for undisclosed reasons.
Masimo shares fell 2% to $150.46 and a $7.9 billion market cap.
