ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medovex Corporation (OTCQB: MDVX) (“Medovex” or the “Company”) today named Michael Yurkowsky, founder of YP Holdings, and Raymond Monteleone, formerly of Arthur Young (now EY), to its board of directors, effective immediately. The appointments come on the heels of the successful closing of the previously announced acquisition of Regenerative Medicine Solutions, LLC (“RMS”).

He went on to start and manage his own hedge fund, specializing in debt arbitrage. In 2012, he opened his own family office, YP Holdings LLC, which has invested in more than 50 private companies and participated in more than 100 public company financing transactions. Throughout his career, Mr. Yurkowsky has served on multiple public and private boards and has been involved in several M&A transactions.
A former partner with Arthur Young (now EY), Ray Monteleone joins Medovex after working closely with several large and small companies serving as board member and/or advisor, specializing in strategic planning, health care, tax and financial planning and corporate management. Monteleone previously served as an officer working closely with the Board of Directors of Laser Spine Institute (“LSI”) and worked as deputy commissioner, chief operating officer, and chief financial officer with the Florida Department of Education. He attended an exclusive Arthur Young Harvard Business School program and earned his MBA from Florida Atlantic University. Considered an expert in financial analysis and business management, Monteleone is regularly featured as a lecturer at various universities and professional associations.
"I’m pleased to welcome both Michael and Ray to our board of directors following the acquisition of RMS,” said William “Bill” Horne, Medovex CEO and Chairman. “Both of their respective backgrounds and skill sets make them ideally suited to join us during this pivotal time for the company. Ray and I have a long history of working together after both serving the board at LSI in my capacity as chairman and his advisor, and I have seen his proven track record of creating value for investors firsthand. I look forward to having him and Michael lend their expertise as we move forward with integrating the two organizations under Medovex’s mission to improve quality of life for patients through innovative medical products and services."
“In the near term, we will further explore the potential opportunity and market penetration of the DenerveX™ System, our first product which provides relief from pain associated with facet joint syndrome,” added Horne. “We will continue to provide our investors with other company updates, including additional board and management appointments and corporate rebranding initiatives.”
