Spinal Elements Announces Headquarters and CEO Changes
Spinal Elements, Inc. today announced plans to move its global headquarters to its Carlsbad, California location. Concurrent with this move, Jason Blain, co-founder of Spinal Elements and currently its President and COO, will assume the role of President and CEO. This change is effective immediately.
“I am excited by the opportunity to lead our talented team of employees and partners and create an even more vibrant and dynamic Spinal Elements in the years to come,” said Jason Blain, Spinal Elements’ new President and CEO. “I thank Chris Fair and the other members of our board of directors for their confidence. Going forward, Spinal Elements will continue to be focused on innovation and execution, driven by differentiated technologies and premium customer service, and we will move quickly to scale new ideas and opportunities into this dynamic marketplace.”
The company’s headquarters move will have minimal impact on Spinal Elements’ Marietta, Georgia - based operations and employees. Added Blain, “The company remains committed to its Marietta campus and our employees based there.”
Mr. Blain’s ascension to CEO will build on the strong foundation and momentum achieved by the Spinal Elements team under Chris Fair’s leadership. “Jason has inspired many of Spinal Elements’ most exciting technologies – past, present and future – while also fostering a team-oriented culture in each position he has held during his career," said Mr. Fair. “I look forward to supporting Jason and the company across all future endeavors.” Mr. Fair, who resides with his family in the Atlanta metro area, will continue as a member of Spinal Elements’ Board of Directors.
Prior to co-founding Spinal Elements in 2003, Mr. Blain had roles of increasing responsibility in product development, manufacturing, regulatory affairs and quality assurance with Smith & Nephew, Alphatec, and NuVasive.
