Interventional device development firm AngioDynamics reported that its board of directors has elected Vincent Bucci as its chairman. Bucci joined the AngioDynamics board in January this year when Queensbury, N.Y.-based company acquired Rita Medical Systems; he had been chairman of the Rita board since 2003 and a board member since 1994.
The size of the AngioDynamics board remains unchanged, at nine members, the company said. Bucci succeeds Paul Echenberg, who will remain on the board and serve on the compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees. Echenberg was elected chairman in 2004, and has served on the AngioDynamics board since 1996.
