TORONTO, ON/ WAYNE, NJ (April 11, 2018) – The Bedford Consulting Group is pleased to announce that for the second time in less than a year, we have successfully completed an executive search for Getinge Group.


Most recently, our North American Life Sciences practice, led by Howard Pezim and Darren Raycroft, successfully completed the search for Eric Honroth, who will be the Getinge Group President, North America, starting in April.


Eric joins Getinge from Becton Dickinson, where he was the National Vice President of Sales for their MPS Surgical Division. Previously, Eric played a key role in building and leading Carefusion’s Surgical and Vascular Organizations and oversaw the procedural solutions business. Eric has lived throughout Europe, the US and Canada and was the General Manager for Abbott Vascular’s Canadian and Latin American business between 2011-2013.


Last spring, Bedford successfully placed David Eberson as Getinge Group’s VP of HR for the Americas. David previously enjoyed an accomplished 10+ year career with Stryker, most recently as the Group VP of HR for Stryker’s MedSurg and Neurotechnology businesses, where he was accountable for 13 business units and 10,000 employees across North America and Europe.


“It has been a privilege for us to partner with Getinge Group on these critical executive roles,” said Bedford Managing Director, Howard Pezim. “Our unique proprietary diagnostic and assessment tools focused on “Fit”, as well as our close working relationship with the executive team at Getinge Group, were critical in attracting these high calibre leaders to the organization” stated Bedford Partner, Darren Raycroft.
