SAN DIEGO, CA, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – CareFusion (NYSE:CFN), a leading global medical technology company, today announced that Supratim Bose has been elected as the 10th member of its board of directors, effective immediately.
Bose is currently executive vice president and president, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa for Boston Scientific Corporation, a position he has held since January 2013. He joined Boston Scientific in December 2011 as executive vice president and president, Asia-Pacific and served in that role until he also assumed responsibility for the company's Middle East and Africa international units. Before joining Boston Scientific, Bose was founder and chief executive officer of Singapore-based Bose Consulting Group, which specialized in strategic management consulting services for the health care industry. Prior to that, he worked for nearly 30 years at Johnson & Johnson, where he concluded his tenure as company group chairman of its Medical Devices and Diagnostics business in 2009. Bose joined Johnson & Johnson Ltd. India in 1981, and held a variety of management positions of increasing responsibility.
