Our Leadership

Chris Parker

Vice President of Global Market Development

Chris joined Gentuity in 2023 as the Vice President of Global Market Development, responsible for the worldwide commercialization of Gentuity’s product pipeline. He has over 30 years of experience in medical device sales and marketing, with a focus on groundbreaking cardiovascular technologies. Prior to joining Gentuity, Chris was the Marketing Lead at Artio Medical, a pre-commercial start-up developing products for peripheral, neurovascular, and cardiovascular intervention. Chris also served as Director of Marketing at Abbott Vascular, leading a team executing global upstream and downstream marketing activities for Abbott’s imaging, physiology, and core coronary product franchises.

Chris believes that commercial success comes from having a great team that can find purpose in the company’s mission and have fun working together. As a marketer, he believes in the importance of honesty, empathy, and integrity, which guide him to connect authentically with the clinical community. One of the most poignant moments of Chris’ career was having the opportunity to meet some of the patients treated by devices he helped bring to market. Seeing the patients living happy, healthy lives was a professional highlight. Chris holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Illinois.
