Mindray taps Ede as new VP
Mindray Medical International Limited, a developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices, has appointed Ronald Ede as group vice president of international operations, effective June 25th.

Ede's primary responsibilities will be to oversee international operations, with a focus on Mindray's integration of Datascope's patient monitoring device business, which Mindray acquired in May 2008, according to the Shenzhen, China-based company.

Ede has served as an independent director on Mindray's board and several committees since Mindray's initial public offering in September 2006, Mindray said. The company also noted that Ede will continue to serve on the board as a director, but will not continue to serve on committees that require director independence.
