Chairman of the board of Orthofix , James F. Gero, said, Peter has been a key member of Orthofix’s Board of Directors for 17 years. His broad international business background brought immeasurable operating knowledge to Orthofix that aided in the Company’s consistent organic and inorganic growth over a number of years. Peter’s human resource skills have also served the Company well as he has been a mentor and advisor for many members of the Board and the senior management team. I personally have enjoyed my long interaction with Peter and have gained a lot from his wisdom and his counsel.
