Todd has spent the last three decades leading three of the world’s largest orthopedic companies’ knee franchises. With experience ranging from Sales and Marketing, Product Development, Strategy, and M&A to driving P&L, Todd is an experienced visionary leader focused on accelerating growth opportunities and creating world-class teams and cultures.
After graduating Magna Cum Laude with his bachelor’s degree in Management Science from Franklin University, Todd began his career at Zimmer, the world’s #1 orthopedic company, where he held a variety of leadership roles in Customer Service and Sales Planning before moving into a Product Management role, leading the development of the NexGen Complete Knee Solution™. NexGen would go on to become the most widely used and clinically successful knee of all time.
Over the next 12 years, Todd played integral roles across Marketing for Zimmer’s knee franchise both in the US and globally. As Vice President of US Marketing, Todd had expanded responsibility for the entire Zimmer ortho portfolio, (Hips, Knees, Extremities, and Trauma). Finally, in 2003, Todd led the integration of both the Knee personnel and products from the Centerpulse acquisition worldwide.
Todd’s next role as Senior Vice President of Sales, Americas saw him complete the US distributor reorganization post Centerpulse acquisition as he was outpacing the Canadian and Latin American markets in sales growth and stabilizing market share in the US.
Todd then moved to the role of Senior Vice President, Global Knee Business where he led the introduction of NexGen® Gender Solutions™ total knee system and the first Direct-to-Patient advertising campaign in company history. This led Zimmer to outgrow the knee market and cemented NexGen as the most successful commercial knee brand in the world.
In January 2008 Todd left Zimmer to co-found and serve as Chief Marketing Officer for JointVue, LLC, a diagnostic imaging company. He stayed in that role on an exclusive basis until October 2008 and stayed on in a consulting role through the end of 2010.
In October 2008 Todd joined Biomet, the world’s #5 Orthopaedic company, as Vice President, Marketing Services. At Biomet, he held three high-profile positions, (the last of which was as the Vice-President and General Manager, Global Knees), which resulted in significant revenue growth, market share expansion and ultimately the company being acquired by market leader Zimmer – the $13.5 billion acquisition in 2015.
In 2015, Biomet was acquired by Zimmer, and Todd was appointed Vice President and General Manager, Global Knee Business where he was tasked with integrating the Knee personnel and products on a global basis. Todd ended his Zimmer Biomet career as President and General Manager, Global Knee Business with P&L responsibility for the companies’ global knee, bone cement and computer-assisted surgery divisions, on July 12, 2019.
