*PEOPLE: ClearFlow Names Michael Elniski VP of Global Sales

A med-device company has named Michael Elniski VP of global sales.

ClearFlow, with HQ in Anaheim, developed and patented a system with the goals of expediting recovery, reducing complications and lowering healthcare costs related to medical tube obstruction.

Elniski — who most recently served as franchise VP of cardiac critical care at Merit Medical, and was previously VP of healthcare solutions at Edwards Lifesciences — is recognized for building sales organizations that consistently over-achieve sales goals.

He brings to ClearFlow a “rich expertise in developing commercial strategy and execution focused on competitive and disruptive medical device solutions,” according to a May 21 press release.

“Michael has had a distinguished career to date, with major corporations in his wake, including 16 years at Edwards rising through the ranks from sales professional to executive leadership positions there and at Merit,” Paul Molloy, ClearFlow CEO, said in the release. “His sales and commerce credentials are truly impressive but his work ethic, character and personality are what sealed our attraction to him. Michael is hard working, organized, disciplined and focused and brings years of medical device commercialization experience to ClearFlow. It’s a great fit and we look forward to reaping the benefits of his skills and expertise as we continue to grow and develop a world class sales organization befitting our innovative and disruptive science and technology.”

ClearFlow is the manufacturer of the PleuraFlow Active Clearance Technology System, an FDA-cleared device that enables caregivers to proactively remove clots formed inside a chest tube to prevent or minimize this type of chest tube obstruction.

This system is approved for use in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico and other countries in Asia and the Middle East.
