CLEVELAND, March 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewRay, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRAY) ("the Company") today announced that Shahriar Matin, Chief Operating Officer, will leave the Company effective March 31, 2021. Matin was named Chief Executive Officer designate of Cordis in its recently announced divestiture from Cardinal Health to private equity firm Hellman & Friedman.
"It has been a privilege to work alongside the ViewRay team, and I believe that MRIdian is unequivocally the future of radiation oncology," said Shahriar Matin, Chief Operating Officer. "Departing ViewRay is difficult, but I am confident that the team we have built will execute on the opportunity to become standard of care."
"I would like to thank Shar for his many contributions to ViewRay and cancer patients. I wish him continued success and hearty congratulations in his new endeavors," said President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Drake. "We have been working closely with Shar to prepare for his departure since last summer when we modified his separation agreement. Given the strength of our team, we are not backfilling the COO role."
ViewRay, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRAY), designs, manufactures, and markets the MRIdian® MR-Guided Radiation Therapy System. MRIdian is built upon a proprietary high-definition MR imaging system designed from the ground up to address the unique challenges and clinical workflow for advanced radiation oncology. Unlike MR systems used in diagnostic radiology, MRIdian's high-definition MR was purpose-built to address specific challenges, including beam distortion, skin toxicity, and other concerns that potentially may arise when high magnetic fields interact with radiation beams.
