Brad Mathis and Ryan Salomone have extensive backgrounds that make them uniquely positioned to bring substantial value to Healthtech.
Brad Mathis brings a diversified skillset to Healthtech, acquired from over 30 years in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.

At Alexion, Brad held multiple positions of increasing responsibility heading up sales, marketing, market access, and training. In addition to his extensive leadership experience, Brad has executed numerous successful product launches, overseeing multiple cross-functional teams, and ensuring critical timebound tactics supported timely product launches. Before joining Alexion, Brad held several positions of increasing responsibility with Amgen, Celgene, Biogen and BMS over a span of 15 years.
“It is an honor to be joining Ned Swanson, MD, and the Healthtech team to identify, develop and accelerate new technologies in the healthcare industry,” stated newly appointed COO Brad Mathis, who continued, “This is truly a rare opportunity to leverage my life’s experience in a role that can positively impact the lives of patients and providers. With over 30 years of biotech commercialization and operations experience, I am positioned to help startup companies develop and mature to bring game changing assets to market. We believe our portfolio model allows us to align synergies across assets while taking advantage of the unique skillsets and experience of our leadership team.”
Ryan Salomone brings an invaluable background to the board of Healthtech, with over 15 years of experience working at Fidelity Institutional Asset Management focused on healthcare investing, most recently as a Senior Healthcare Analyst on the Small Cap Team. Mr. Salomone’s experience at Fidelity is directly applicable to Healthtech’s strategy, including a systematic approach to evaluating new opportunities, leveraging his insights to accelerate portfolio companies, and leaning on his broad network of investment and industry relationships to take Healthtech and its subsidiaries to their full potential. Since leaving Fidelity, Mr. Salomone co-founded Twin Keel Capital, an asset management firm focused on systematically managed investment strategies, where he serves as the chief investment officer (CIO). Ryan’s insights from developing the systematic investing approach at Twin Keel Capital will further bolster the evaluation and diligence processes at Healthtech.

Healthtech’s unique model offers the potential for meaningful value creation for both portfolio companies and investors while striving to achieve the ultimate goal of improving patients’ lives,” said newly appointed director Ryan Salomone. “I am humbled to be working with and advising such an accomplished collection of healthcare executives that possess the deep domain knowledge necessary to take innovative healthcare assets to the next level. I am confident that my 16 years of capital market experience cultivating industry relationships and performing deep due diligence, risk assessment, and valuation analysis on healthcare assets will prove to be a material benefit to Healthtech achieving its mission.”
Ned Swanson, MD, CEO of Healthtech commented, “We could not be more thrilled to have Brad Mathis as our COO and Ryan Salomone as a director of Healthtech. Their additions significantly expand our capabilities to accelerate the next advancements in healthcare with the potential to improve the lives of countless individuals. With Brad’s experience leading assets from pre-commercial stage to greater than $1.5 billion in revenue and Ryan’s experience advising funds at Fidelity with greater than $35 billion in assets under management, we know we have the right people to deliver on our vision at Healthtech.”
