DentalMonitoring has announced a new business unit, DM Lab, aimed at exploring, testing and validating business opportunities across the dental market, as the company expands its geographical presence in strategic regions, including China and Japan.
As part of this change, Raphaël Pascaud has been appointed senior vice-president and executive director, spearheading this newly created venture, as well as other critical initiatives.
Before joining DentalMonitoring, Pascaud worked for nine years with Align Technology, where he held various senior leadership roles, his final role being senior vice-president of business development and strategy.
Alexandra Van der Stap was named chief growth officer of the DM Lab. She previously held senior leadership roles in consumer brands such as North Face, and recently as vice-president of marketing, strategy and consumer at Align Technology.
Xavier Laniol will also join the lab as global head of commercial operations. Laniol has spent 27 years in both the pharmaceutical and medical devices sectors, which includes 13 years with Johnson & Johnson, and most recently a role as vice-president of southern Europe with Mölnlycke, a company in wound care.
