Marc Beer is an executive in the healthcare industry. His latest venture is Renovia, a company he co-founded with Dr. Ramon Iglesias and Yolanda Lorié. This company, which was founded in August 2016, creates medical devices and services for women who suffer from pelvic floor disorder. This is the latest in a series of healthcare companies he has founded or co-founded over the past 30 years.
One of his earliest companies was Good Start Genetics, Inc. where he was the founding chairman of the board of directors. Marc Beer’s other companies include Minerva Neurosciences, Inc., Genzyme, and ViaCell. He is a graduate of Ohio’s Miami University where he earned a bachelor’s degree.
In early 2019, Marc Beer was selected to join the board of LumeNXT, Inc., as its new chairman. This is a private venture that has developed a line of illumination devices for surgeons. The devices are designed to be used during minimally invasive surgeries. He was chosen due to his extensive experience launching and growing medical devices firms. He was also chosen given his past success as a leader in the industry.
Marc Beer says that he was impressed with the team at LumeNXT when he met them. LumeNXT is a team of surgeons and engineers who used their collective skills to solve a problem doctors have in the surgical room. He said that their technology will give surgeons a way to do surgery in a safer and more effective manner. This is especially important as there are more minimally invasive surgeries than ever today and the practice is expected to keep growing.
Their illumination device has a number of advantages. It incorporates a heat reduction device that reduces the chances of a patient suffering burns. It also gives surgeons a way to be even more precise when cutting a patient open and then sealing the cut shut. Additionally, their illumination devices are low-cost and can be disposed of after a surgery has been completed.
Paul Rhyne is one of the co-founders of LumeNXT. He said that Marc Beer has shown he knows how to build a successful startup and lead it through multiple growth phases. He and his team are excited to work with him so that LumeNXT will be as successful as possible. Their products are going to be releasing in the United States as well as globally, something he also has a great deal of experience with.
