Radiosurgery developer Accuray has appointed Louis J. Lavigne, Jr. to chair its board of directors, succeeding Wayne Wu, who is stepping down as chairperson but will remain on the board of directors.
Lavigne, who had most recently served as a management consultant specializing in the areas of corporate finance, accounting and strategy, has been a member of Accuray’s board since September 2009 and has served as the chair of its compensation committee.
