Indiana’s orthopedic industry initiative has shuffled leadership. Former Chief Executive Officer Sheryl Conley has been selected president of the AcceLINX Inc. musculoskeletal health business accelerator and Chief Operating Officer Cathy Limina is leaving for a job in the private sector. Brad Bishop will continue to serve as OrthoWorx executive director, a position he has held for more than seven years. He will work with the board of directors on future staffing considerations.
OrthoWorx launched AcceLINX in 2016 to provide industry-specific support to entrepreneurs and startups. OrthoWorx says it will continue to focus on talent attraction and retention, while coordinating with AcceLINX on innovation and some college engagement. Pierceton-based Paragon Medical Inc. Chief Executive Officer Toby Buck serves as OrthoWorx board chair and says "we remain very much engaged and committed to supporting the OrthoWorx mission and look forward to working with Brad and the staff to continue to move the organization forward."
Limina will remain on the AcceLINX board of directors and Conley will remain a member of the Orthopedics Capital Foundation board, which leads OrthoWorx’s philanthropic activities. Bishop was the first employee hired by OrthoWorx shortly after its creation in 2009.
