Medovex Corp. Announces Jeffery Wright as Chief Financial Officer, Changes Auditors

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Jan 30, 2015) - Medovex Corp. (NASDAQ: MDVXU), a developer of medical technology products including the DenerveX device, announced today that the Board of Directors approved the appointment of Jeffery Wright as the Company's Chief Financial Officer, and Frazier & Deeter LLP, an Atlanta based independent registered public accounting firm, as the Company's new auditor at its January 27th Board meeting.

The desire for an Atlanta based auditing firm was cited as the primary reason for the change in auditors (the former auditors were based in New York City). There were no disagreements with former auditors.

As a newly appointed member of the management team, Mr. Wright will be responsible for leading and managing all of the Company's corporate and managerial finance functions including planning, budgeting and analysis. Wright replaces Charles Farrahar, who will remain with the Company on a part-time basis as its Secretary.

"We believe Jeff is ideally suited for this position and expect that he will play a key role in supporting Medovex's growth and business development initiatives," said Jarrett Gorlin, CEO of Medovex.

Prior to joining Medovex, Mr. Wright was an audit senior at Ernst & Young within the Assurance Services division, where he had an opportunity to help manage audits of large ($2 billion to $10 billion annual revenue) publicly-traded companies. He also has experience auditing medium size ($2 million - $200 million annual revenue) privately-held companies in multiple industries with other accounting firms.

Prior to his career in public accounting, Mr. Wright worked as a trading analyst in the retirement trust services department at Reliance Trust Company, managing the institutional trading desk to settle mutual fund transactions with the National Securities Clearing Corporation. Mr. Wright holds Master of Professional Accountancy and Bachelor of Business Administration degrees from the Georgia State University Robinson College of Business and is a member of the Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants.
