SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 6, 2023 / Modular Medical, Inc. (the "Company" or "Modular Medical") (NASDAQ:MODD), a development stage insulin delivery technology company seeking to launch the next generation of easy to use and affordable insulin pump technology, today announced the appointment of medical device industry leader Duane DeSisto to its board of directors. Mr. DeSisto was previously President, CEO and Director of Insulet Corporation, developers of the groundbreaking OmniPod Insulin Management System, before retiring in 2014.

"Duane brings more than 25 years of experience in the medical device industry and is a visionary business leader credited with the launch and transformational growth of Omnipod, the first insulin patch pump from Insulet," said Jeb Besser, CEO of Modular Medical. "Duane's extensive background in operational leadership and commercialization of insulin pumps will be an extremely valuable resource for our team, as we prepare to launch our patch pump."

Mr. DeSisto will partner with Paul DiPerna, Modular Medical's founder and the former CEO of Tandem Diabetes. "I am excited to have Duane join our board, as I believe his strategic leadership and market development expertise, and our combined experience leading the commercialization of the two industry-leading pumps will create tremendous momentum for Modular Medical," said Mr. DiPerna.

Mr. DeSisto served as President and CEO of Insulet from 2001 to 2014, where he led the creation and commercial adoption of the Company's debut product, OmniPod, the world's first tubing-free disposable insulin pump. Under Mr. DeSisto, Insulet grew from an early-stage company to a market cap of more than $2 billion and was nationally recognized for its technology design and rapid growth, including being listed fourth on Forbes' "Most Innovative Growth Companies" in 2014 with five-year average sales growth of 47 percent. Prior to that, he served as Chief Financial Officer of AAI-Foster Grant and Zoll Medical Corporation.

"I look forward to working with Paul, the board and leadership team to launch this novel, easy to use affordable pump that will clearly open the market to many more patients and improve diabetes outcomes," said Mr. DeSisto.
