Experienced HCIT Sales and Marketing Leader, Olivier Zmirou, Joins Capsule Tech, Inc. as EMEA Vice President of Sales and Marketing

PARIS--(Marketwire - October 23, 2009) - Capsule Technologie (Capsule Tech, Inc.), (www.capsuletech.com), the leading provider of medical device connectivity, today announced that Olivier Zmirou has joined as the EMEA Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Zmirou brings over 14 years of sales management, business development, and marketing experience in healthcare information technology to Capsule.

Mr. Zmirou has spent the majority of his career with McKesson France in a variety of positions including Sales and Marketing Director, Director of European Marketing Development, and most recently as Sales and Business Development Director. "Coming from an EMR company it's my priority to secure long term partnerships with EMR and CIS vendors in order for hospitals to benefit most from the value of connectivity. European hospitals have made tremendous progress in their IT implementations in the recent years. As they now struggle to streamline their workflow and improve data quality, device connectivity appears as a readily and flexible solution to help them move forward. I'm really excited about joining Capsule as it is the only company to provide a truly vendor neutral viable solution for the fragmented EMR market that we have in Europe," Zmirou said.

"We couldn't be more thrilled about Olivier leading our EMEA sales organization. Ours is a complex and rapidly evolving market. Olivier's healthcare IT experience combined with his unique knowledge of healthcare economics make him well suited to lead our sales efforts and build the critical partnerships that will ensure our continued growth," said Arnaud Houette, CEO, Capsule Technologies.

Mr. Zmirou will be focused on managing the EMEA sales and marketing channels. He will be managing current reseller relationships and will be continuing to develop and expand those relationships throughout the targeted regions.
