In Canada and around the world, the potential for improved health resulting from developments in medical imaging is as enormous as its economic potential. The annual global market for diagnostic medical imaging equipment and software is estimated at $32 billion and is growing by seven percent each year. The Centre for Imaging Technology Commercialization (“CIMTEC”) exists to facilitate the commercialization of important and world-leading medical imaging technology, so that Canadians can reap the health and economic benefits of these innovations. CIMTEC provides technology development services with expertise focused in medical imaging to help researchers, startups and small and medium-sized companies bring their imaging innovations to the marketplace.
CIMTEC Medical Inc. (CMI) is a for-profit company, wholly owned by the Centre for Imaging Technology Commercialization. As of January 2016, all potentially profitable fee-for-service or licensing engagements are contracted through CIMTEC Medical Inc. from the Centre for Imaging Technology Commercialization, and other service providers, to carry out customer projects.
Combined, CIMTEC Medical Inc. and the Centre for Imaging Technology Commercialization will continue to be known as CIMTEC.
Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, the CEO will have overall accountability for all aspects of CIMTEC. As the organization transitions to a greater focus on a fee-for-service business model, through the for-profit entity, the CEO will develop and direct the implementation of the business and marketing plans for the company. As well as driving new business and research initiatives, the CEO will also be accountable for overseeing the day to day operations for CIMTEC, implementing and ensuring accountability to the performance targets and metrics. The CEO will develop and communicate the vision and operational demands to all stakeholders.
With an advanced degree, the ideal candidate will bring a strong business and technical background and a track record in marketing start-up businesses, preferably in the healthcare industry. Entrepreneurial, with a strong vision, the CEO will possess a broad management and leadership background, with demonstrated talent in leading organizations through growth and transition.
