Dr. Rafaeli commented further, “It is a pleasure to have Dr. Kaur rejoin our team, and we look forward to her contributions as we revitalize our sales and marketing efforts to align with our new business objectives. Aman brings subject matter knowledge and a specific understanding of how the unique STRATA go-to-market approach of providing value-added services helps grow the recurring sales model. Her close ties with the clinical and research community and her experience as a business development leader will help STRATA accomplish its near-term turn-around goals.”
