Astron Clinica enhances its senior management team

21 February 2006 – Astron Clinica, the Cambridge-UK based skin imaging company has enhanced its executive team with two key senior management appointments. Dr. Don Musto is appointed as Sales Director, responsible for leading business development in EMEA and managing the company’s expanding distributor network. John Mayfield is appointed as Chief Financial Officer, responsible for Administration, Finance and Human Resources.

Astron Clinica has revolutionized skin imaging with SIAscopy, its patented technology that enables its customers to visualize the skin’s components up to 2 mm beneath the skin. Its products are used to assist dermatologists, general practitioners and plastic surgeons to diagnose, analyse and monitor skin health. More recently SIAscopy is being used by cosmetics formulators to test product efficacy and support claims validation.

The company’s products include a suite of skin cancer products that have been clinically proven to help dermatologists more accurately diagnose and monitor malignant melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.

“2005 proved to be an important year for Astron Clinica, with increased awareness and sales of our products in both Europe and Australia. Our growing network of distributors in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific report a substantial increase in interest in our SIAscopy based products,“ comments Annie Brooking, CEO, Astron Clinica.

“We expect the appointment of Don Musto and John Mayfield to provide a secure foundation for the ambitious growth plans we have set in place for 2006. The new capital secured from Kuwait Finance House in 2005 will be used to build market share worldwide, facilitate entrance to the USA market and to continue development of the DERMETRICS product line with new applications.”

Musto joins Astron Clinica with over 25 years in the technology market, from hardware sales to consultancy and training. He has a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry.

Mayfield joins the company from EDF Man Ltd, a distribution and trading organisation, where he was Finance Director, North and South America. He has over 20 years experience in board level management accountancy, tax planning and risk. He has proven experience in raising finance (VC, debt and equity) and interfacing with investors.
