Theraclion Appoints Two Leaders for Business Development
in Germany and Asia
 Appointment of Jose Abellan-Martinez as Vice President
 Promotion of Sylvain Yon as Deputy CEO
Paris, FRANCE – November 24, 2014 – THERACLION (Alternext, FR0010120402 - ALTHE) a company
specializing in cutting-edge medical equipment for echotherapy, today announced the appointment
of two regional leaders as a way to boost business growth in their respective geographic areas.
Jose Abellan-Martinez will join Theraclion at the beginning of 2015 as its Vice President for Germany
and Central Europe. Abellan-Martinez will oversee the company’s business development in Germany,
a key target in Theraclion’s growth strategy. The existing academic hospital reference sites in the
country and the fact that some health care coverage plans already include breast fibroadenoma will
allow Theraclion to quickly expand in this promising market. Abellan-Martinez’s additional
responsibilities will include the company’s business development in Central Europe.
Abellan-Martinez is a recognized leader in the health industry who has spent his entire career in the
health division of General Electric (GE). He helped design and manufacture innovative imaging
solutions in the fields of radiology, cardiology and surgery. From 2009 to 2014, Abellan-Martinez
headed the clinical workflow department of GE’s digital mammography solution. GE is the world
leader in imaging solutions for the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Abellan-Martinez
graduated with a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Giessen in
Sylvain Yon, formerly Theraclion’s Vice President of Research and Development, has been promoted
to Deputy CEO, with a particular focus on the development of the Asian markets. Yon will continue
to lead the company’s R&D, Integration and Services and will provide his technical and business
experience to the launch of the Echopulse® system in Asia.
Yon is a co-founder of Echosens, where he headed engineering activities until 2008. He then
successfully handled the company’s acquisition by a major player in the Chinese health industry,
before joining Theraclion. He is also the founder of several companies in the fields of acoustics and
the Internet. Yon has a Ph.D. in physics from Paris VII University and an engineering degree from
ESPCI ParisTech, both in France.
“The entire team is looking forward to the arrival of Jose and welcomes the promotion of Sylvain. We
needed an experienced healthcare-industry leader in Germany. This market has become our utmost
priority today for the adoption of the Echopulse® technology. From a general point of view, Jose’s
outstanding experience will allow us to boost Theraclion’s growth in Europe. The company’s success
in Europe, based on our direct sales force, will build the foundation for its development in emerging
countries, particularly in Asia. This is why I also welcome the extended responsibilities of Sylvain, one
of the company’s pillars,” said David Caumartin, CEO of Theraclion.
