Outset Medical, a commercial-stage company delivering new technology into the $13 billion global dialysis market, today announced the appointment of Gus Castello as the company’s chief operating officer.
Gus is an experienced med tech veteran with more than 30 years of diverse leadership positions in product operations and quality. From early 2002 until late 2013, he held the positions of Vice President of Manufacturing and later, Senior Vice President of Product Operations worldwide for Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG). During Gus’ tenure at Intuitive Surgical he was responsible for the leadership, planning and execution of the company’s Product Quality and Operations strategy in support of 20% year-over-year topline revenue growth from $40 million in 2001 to $2.3 billion in 2013. During this time, Gus also led key initiatives around the reliability, cost reduction and high-volume manufacturability of four generations of the da Vinci ® Surgical System and its associated surgical tools and accessories.
“We are thrilled to welcome Gus to the Outset Medical leadership team,” said Leslie Trigg, Outset Medical’s CEO. “In much the same way Intuitive Surgical leveraged technology to transform the way surgeries are performed, Outset sees an opportunity for new technology to reduce the cost of dialysis care and meaningfully improve the patient experience. Gus’ experience helping build Intuitive Surgical into the powerhouse it has become is invaluable as we scale the growth of our technology both domestically and abroad.”
