He replaces Mike Mogul, who is stepping down but is staying with the company until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition.

“The Board unanimously agrees that Brady’s leadership experience, coupled with his innovative and strategic thinking and proven track record of delivering results, make him the right person to drive DJO’s dual imperatives of achieving sustainable above market growth and driving cost and service leadership in all of our activities,” says Mike Zafirovski, DJO’s chairman of the board of directors, regarding the appointment, in a company news release.

Before that, he served in several leadership positions at Stryker Corporation, including President of Stryker Communications and Senior Vice President of Stryker Endoscopy.

“I am honored and excited to lead DJO through what I would consider to be a unique evolution. Our fast growing surgical business, our market leading bracing and vascular business and rapidly expanding consumer business create a broad base for expansive revenue growth and operational productivity today and tomorrow,” Shirley says in the release.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike for his many contributions over the past 5 years. Under his leadership, DJO has grown significantly faster than our competitors, and our new product innovation has increased four-fold. I also want to commend Mike for helping recruit and develop many talented leaders in the company, which will serve us well in the future,” Zafirovski states.
