“I look forward to the opportunity to serve in this role while the Board conducts a search for Covalon’s next CEO,” said Mr. Boloor. “I am looking forward to partnering with Covalon’s leadership team to ensure we continue to execute on behalf of all our stakeholders, including our clients, our staff and our shareholders. Covalon has a strong balance sheet, no debt, a dedicated and experienced team, a large portfolio of patented healthcare technologies and significant momentum with its advanced wound care and infection prevention product portfolios.”

Mr. Boloor succeeds Brian Pedlar, who will remain on Covalon’s Board of Directors. “On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to sincerely thank Brian for his leadership during his more than 13-year tenure, including the Company’s evolution from a research and development centric company to a product centric company. He set the stage for Covalon’s next phase of growth,” said Amir Boloor. “We look forward to receiving his continued advice and wish him much success in his future endeavors.”
