At Caption Health, DeVivo was instrumental in the successful sale of the company to GE Healthcare. DeVivo also serves on the Board of Governors for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and for the Lausanne Collegiate School, and is the Treasurer on the Board of Directors at the American Telemedicine Association.
“Joseph DeVivo’s proven commercial success, deep understanding of the market and ability to think strategically to scale and run businesses over a three-decade career were essential criteria in our search for a new CEO,” said Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, Butterfly Network’s Founder, Board Member and outgoing Interim CEO. “His industry and commercial expertise, paired with his dedication make him the ideal candidate to lead Butterfly. We are excited to have him join Butterfly as we continue transforming healthcare through AI-enabled, semiconductor-based, portable whole-body imaging, and I am confident in his ability to make Butterfly widely successful.”
Dr. Rothberg added, “On a personal note, Joseph is a wonderful mentor with an ideal combination of strategy, operations and people skills. As an investor, a Board Member, and a Founder who cares deeply for the company and team, I am excited to have him onboard.”
“I am thrilled to be joining Butterfly Network as President and CEO at this pivotal moment in its journey as the company continues to drive progress in the adoption of accessible, affordable and portable imaging technology,” said DeVivo. “I also look forward to collaborating with and leading the team at Butterfly to advance the company’s goal of making the Butterfly iQ+ as ubiquitous as the stethoscope, ensuring that every patient has access to this potentially life-changing technology anywhere and everywhere.”
DeVivo’s appointment follows the company’s recent 510(k) clearance for a groundbreaking AI-enabled Auto B-line Counter that may simplify how healthcare professionals evaluate adults with suspected diminished lung function and can potentially accelerate their ability to make informed treatment decisions at the point of care, with plans to launch the new product in early summer, 2023, in the United States.
