Angel Medical Systems, Inc. (AngelMed) welcomes veteran sales executive Victor Ayers to its senior leadership team as the Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Victor’s responsibilities include building and directing the Company’s national sales team, accelerating the commercialization of the Guardian through new partnerships and channels, and developing marketing and business strategies to further fuel expansion.

Ayers brings more than thirty years of sales and leadership experience to AngelMed. He has a diverse and accomplished career building companies and collaborating with healthcare innovators to break into markets, gain market share, and ensure profit performance.
Ayers has played a critical role in many healthcare “firsts” – including leading the launch of TimelinePI, a process intelligence platform for healthcare and relaunch of the Healthimation mobile app for obesity and diabetes self-management and prevention. He also architected an IT services performance-based methodology which is widely used by health systems and has been featured on ABC Network’s Business Now. Ayers’ accomplishments earned him a spot on the ‘Top 25 Most Influential People” in 2006 by Advance for Health Professional magazine.
About the AngelMed Guardian® System
The AngelMed Guardian® System received approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2018. It is an implantable cardiac monitor with patient alerting for patients who have had prior Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS), including myocardial infarctions (heart attacks) or unstable angina and who remain at high risk for recurrent ACS events. The Angel Med Guardian® System is an adjunct to patient recognized symptoms by detecting potential ongoing ACS events, characterized by sustained ST segment changes and alerting the patient to seek medical attention for those events. Approval of the Angel Med Guardian® System by the U.S. FDA was based on preclinical and clinical data, including data derived from the ALERTS Clinical Study that began in 2009. The Guardian device fills an unmet medical need by providing more effective diagnosis of a life-threatening condition when compared to patient symptoms alone.
