CEA Medical Manufacturing has asked Steven Burdorf to take the post of chief operations officer, a new position created last year. The Colorado Springs, Colo.-based contract manufacturer of final packaged critical care medical devices hired the 20-year industry veteran in in the fall of this year after an extended hiring process, and he is the first to take on the new role.
Prior to joining CEA, Burdorf served at vice president of operations at Aesculap Inc., a medical device division of B.Braun based in Center Valley, Pa. He was also a member of the leadership teams at American Medical Systems Inc., a pelvic health company headquartered in Minnetonka, Minn., and GE Security, formerly a division of General Electric Inc.’s GE Enterprise Solutions, now owned by UTC Fire and Security. He served as vice president of customer care and then of operations integration at Interlogix, a security electronics manufacturing company, between 1997 and 2003.
Burdorf earned an MBA from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minn., an undergraduate degree in logistics, materials, and supply chain management from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, and continuing leadership development from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He also holds several operations efficiency certifications.
