“Clive brings outstanding financial and management expertise to our executive team as Magnetecs enters the pre-commercialization and revenue producing stage based on growing demand for our Robotic Catheter Guidance Control and Imaging System. He will play a key role in our budgeting, management reporting, auditing, fund raising, and in supporting the growth of our financial organization,” said Josh Shachar, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Magnetecs Corporation.

“Clive has been involved in many Growth and Transformation Enterprises during his vast career and provides a unique strategic view from the CFO’s perspective,” said Eytan J. Lombroso, Vice Chairman of Magnetecs, who worked with Clive for 14 years at JP Morgan Chase.

“Magnetecs is realizing the commercial promise of its state-of-the-art technology,” said Mr. Zickel. “I’m delighted to help sustain the Company’s expansion at this pivotal stage of development.”

Mr. Zickel is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, a graduate of the Harvard Business School Program for Management Development and a graduate of the Executive MBA Program at Stony Brook University Graduate School of Business, where he is currently an Adjunct Professor teaching Managerial Accounting and Financial Decision Making.
