Irving, TX - PFO Global   PFO is focused on new technologies to improve vision and to satisfy the consumers experience while reducing costs - thus with the continuous growth of the company, we are again expanding and improving the management structure.

Jagdish Jethmalani, Ph.D., has been named Executive Vice President of Research & Development and is responsible for leading the R&D team and overseeing all R&D and Technology projects.

"I am very pleased to have the most talented individuals in the industry as a part of our management team." said Rudolf Suter, CEO and President, PFO Global. "I have known Jagdish for several years and I am confident that with his leadership and extensive qualifications and experience, PFO will continue to bring the highest level of new and exciting technologies to the marketplace." Dr. Jethmalani comes to PFO Global from the recently closed Ophthonix, Inc. where he served as Director of Material Development for 4 years, then 6 years as Vice President of Research and Development. Under his leadership of R&D at Ophthonix, the new product portfolio increased from 2 products in 2006 to 15+ product offerings in 2012. Formerly, Jethmalani was a founding scientist at Calhoun Vision, Inc. where he developed novel biocompatible silicone formulation for a novel light adjustable (LAL™) intraocular lens (IOL) whose refractive power can be non-invasively adjusted in-vivo. Prior to that, he was a Staff Scientist and Post Doctoral Fellow at California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Jethmalani holds a Ph.D. in Organic/Polymer Chemistry from Oklahoma State University, an M.S. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, an M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry from University of Bombay, India, and a B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Bombay, India. He also holds numerous patents and has had many papers published in Peer Reviewed Books and Professional Journals. "I am very excited to join PFO Global's management team of ophthalmic industry veterans and to work with them to continue their developments and to develop new and improved technologies that are utilized in patient specific vision correction." commented Dr. Jethmalani.
