Raphael S. Pascaud has been promoted to vice president international for Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif. He assumes the position vacated by Richard Twomey, who left the company at the end of 2013 to become CEO of a leading global healthcare products and services company. Pascaud will report directly to Thomas M. Prescott, Align Technology president and CEO.

Prior to joining the Align team in 2010, Pascaud spent 14 years in various management positions within DePuy, a Johnson & Johnson family of companies. He joined Align as vice president and managing director for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region.

“Raphael has been a very effective leader of our Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region for several years, driving continued growth and expansion in this largest component of our international business,” Prescott says. “We have a tremendous opportunity to extend our growth outside of North America, and I look forward to Raphael extending his enthusiasm and expertise to our Asia Pacific and Latin America sales and marketing efforts.”
