“We are extremely pleased to have Jim join ALASTIN as a key member of the executive team to lead our commercialization activities as we continue the rapid growth of our current products and build our product pipeline”, said Diane S. Goostree, president and CEO of Alastin Skincare. “Jim’s extensive operating background in the medical aesthetics space, including experience with energy-based rejuvenating devices, is a natural fit for us as we develop and launch new products and expand our sales force.”
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Alastin’s commercial organization as the company leverages its market-disrupting TriHex Technology to expand the physician-dispensed aesthetics industry,” stated Hartman. “Minimally invasive rejuvenating procedures are a fast-growing segment of the aesthetics industry, and differentiated, efficacious products such as ALASTIN’s Procedure Enhancement line provide optimal outcomes and reduced downtime for patients while building physicians’ practices and the aesthetic market overall.”
