Invacare Corporation (NYSE: IVC) announced today that its Board of Directors has named Geoffrey P. Purtill as President and Chief Executive Officer, roles that he has served on an interim basis since August 28, 2022.

Non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors Michael J. Merriman, Jr, said, “On behalf of the Board, we are excited to elevate Geoff Purtill into the role of President and CEO. The Board determined that Geoff is the right steward of the company as it undergoes significant transformation and embarks on a new chapter. Geoff has proven adept at guiding our global businesses through change, both in his previous role overseeing the EMEA and APAC businesses, and now in his current role. Notably, Geoff and the leadership team have already acted decisively by discontinuing respiratory products and repositioning the business and resources around our core categories of Lifestyle and Mobility & Seating, which are anticipated to drive profitable growth. The Board looks forward to partnering with Geoff as we continue to take decisive action to improve our financial performance and enhance shareholder value.”

Mr. Purtill added, “I am honored that our Board has given me the opportunity to lead Invacare and advance our mission of Making Life’s Experiences Possible for the millions of people who rely on our products each day. I look forward to working closely with all of our customers globally to regain their trust and confidence, especially in North America. As always, I am grateful for all the hard work our associates have put in during these extraordinary times. While we have had our share of challenges, I see great potential in the company and continue to drive and accelerate our transformation plans to strengthen Invacare for the long-term. I look forward to working with our Board who continue to provide guidance as we advance through our transformation.”
