STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS, ADVISOR
Jeffrey Lietkze brings over 25 years in the medical device industry. As an advisor, Jeffrey’s work supports and catalyzes business development, revenue growth, transactions, operations, and strategic partnerships. Jeffrey previously served in business development and legal leadership roles with medical device companies STERIS Corporation, Integra LifeSciences Corporation, and Theken Group. After launching in the 1990s, each of these three ventures wrote exemplary tech-startup stories: STERIS and Integra have become publicly-traded $1+ billion multinationals, and Theken’s first exit closed for approximately $200 million in 2009 (a second closed in 2020, and others continue to grow).
STERIS, Integra, and Theken blend healthcare innovation with resolute leadership, generating sustained successes. They inspire medtech leadership. Solving and building, these “teams” improve lives of patients-in-need by scaling advanced technologies.
A Cornell Law graduate with economics degrees from the University of Akron (M.A.) and The College of Wooster (B.A.), Jeffrey values education and giving-back to communities. He was the first in his family to graduate from college, reinforcing a respect for America and the value of opportunity. Jeffrey volunteered for five years as an Adjunct Professor at Case Western’s School of Law, and Weatherhead M.B.A. program. He delivered early-stage business and technology courses: Representing the Startup Internet Company, Advanced Contracts for E-commerce, and Digital Business & Law.
