Leadership team

Todd Cassidy

Chief Executive Officer


With a B.S. in Biology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Todd cut his teeth working as a research assistant at Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine in 1987. He soon moved into the private sector, becoming the VP of Operations — and first employee — of Wiltek Medical, where he oversaw the design and engineering of endoscopic products.

In 2000, Todd struck out on his own, co-founding Diatek, Inc. to manufacture and develop hemodialysis catheters, as well as co-founding Cathtek, Inc. to supply OEM services to the Catheter industry. In the years since, Todd has also co-founded Springmed Group, LLC and joined the board of directors for C Change Surgical.

Mark Martel

VP, Engineering


Mark attended the University of Lowell, acquiring a B.S. in Plastics Engineering. His extensive experience in insert molding of catheters and components, tipping and other catheter-manufacturing operations began at Arrow International in 1988. He then joined Wilson-Cook Medical, where he was the Manager of their research and development department.

In 1996, Mark left Wilson-Cook to for his first company, MED-Innoventions, which specialized in OEM catheter development. This company became part of Diatek, Inc. in 2000, the same year Mark co-founded Cathtek. Since that time, Mark also co-founded Springmed Group, LLC and joined the board of directors for C Change Surgical.
