Chair and CEO, OtoNexus Medical Technologies
Caitlin Cameron is a highly accomplished senior executive with 30 years' cross-industry expertise in the life sciences, biotech, technology, and IT industries and is a specialist in building successful startup companies.
Caitlin is chair of the board and CEO of OtoNexus Medical Technologies, which is commercializing an ultrasound medical device to instantly and accurately diagnose middle-ear infections, or Otitis Media, in children and adults. Otitis Media is the #1 reason for antibiotic prescriptions in children and the #1 cause for surgery in children, yet clinical studies consistently show error rates in diagnoses averaging 50%, particularly in the key differentiation of viral from bacterial infections, and whether an antibiotic is necessary.
Previously, Caitlin held chair and CEO positions at several life sciences and IT companies, building successful businesses and organizations, creating value, and maximizing potential in a very short period of time. In addition, she has built organizations known for employee satisfaction, including being selected for the 100 Best Places to Work in Washington. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Caitlin rose rapidly through the ranks at AT&T in its fast-track program for top performers and was recognized as among the top 2% of all managers in the company, having driven revenues for her business unit from $300 million to $1.2 billion. She sits on several boards of directors and boards of advisors, primarily in the life sciences arena.
