As a co-founder of Syntheon with nearly three decades of experience in the medical device industry, Sean has played a pivotal role in the company’s past as today he guides its future. He began his career in Research and Development at American Home Products, later sold to Symbiosis. What follows is a remarkable record achievement.

All anchored by a marriage of more than 20 years, rewarding him with three happy and successful young adult children.
