Perry Guinn, Cook Biotech VP of Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs, retires

After nearly 18 years at Cook Biotech, Perry Guinn retired as vice president of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs on May 29.
Guinn joined Cook Biotech as director of Quality Assurance in September 2002, having worked in the medical device industry for more than 30 years. He was promoted to vice president of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs in 2006.

“During his 17 plus years at Cook Biotech, Perry’s leadership in regulatory affairs and quality assurance has provided a strong foundation of quality and regulatory compliance,” Cook Biotech President Umesh Patel said.

Guinn said what he found at Cook Biotech in 2002 was a hopeful, entrepreneurial company with a promising technology and potential to develop and grow. “The wonder of the extracellular matrix technology still fascinates me,” Guinn said of the core technology upon which Cook Biotech was founded.

Curt Bogue, director of Quality Assurance, and Nick Wang, director of Regulatory Affairs, have assumed Guinn’s responsibilities at Cook Biotech.

“Perry led us in building an efficient, state-of-the-art quality system and successfully navigating the changing global regulatory environment so our life-improving products are available to patients around the world.”
