MONTREAL January 31, 2019 – SoundBite Medical Solutions Inc. (SoundBite) announced today that Steven Arless has resigned as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Effective February 1, 2019, Steven Arless, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of SoundBite will relinquish his role as Director representing the Founders and, as a result, his role as Chairman of the Board.
Mr. Arless has decided to pursue his other interests in teaching (Professor of Practice, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University) and in building a Medtech Start-up Ecosystem at one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing accelerators, Montreal-based Centech. He is also co-founding two other MedTech start-ups in the Montreal region.
Steven Arless says: “As one of the Company’s co-founders, I would like to thank Martin Brouillette and my other co-founders, Louis-Philippe Riel and Steven Dion, for having given me the opportunity to start up and commercialize SoundBite’s transformational shockwave technology. We have been working together at this effort for over six years, and it has been an honor to work with them.” Furthermore, and as evidenced in the Shareholders Business message sent out at the beginning of January, I am confident that the great momentum created in 2018 will continue on in 2019 under Francis Bellido’s leadership as CEO.”
“Without Steve’s entrepreneurial vision and leadership, SoundBite would not have been nearly as advanced and well financed”, said Martin Brouillette. “We thank him for his outstanding efforts.”
Francis Bellido, CEO of SoundBite, added: “Steve’s track record in Medtech start-ups over the course of his career, including CryoCath, CardioInsight, Resonant and now SoundBite, speaks for itself. We will miss his wisdom and experience going forward.”
Also effective on February 1, 2019, Martin Brouillette will be assuming the vacant Board seat, allocated to the founders, as a result of Mr. Arless’ resignation.
