“On behalf of the Board, the executive leadership team and the employees at LivaNova, I would like to thank Marco for his leadership over the last 6.5 years, especially during the development and launch of the Essenz™ Perfusion System and during a challenging time of market and supply chain disruption during and post pandemic,” said Bill Kozy, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Board Chair. “We wish Marco the best in his retirement from LivaNova. We are confident in Franco and our experienced CP senior leadership team and expect a smooth transition.”
