OrthoAccel Technologies Inc, Houston, has brought on board Jeff Layton as the company’s new chief operations officer and Doug Bukaty as vice president of sales. Both executives come to OrthoAccel having served in managerial roles at Fortune 500 companies.

In his role as chief operations officer, Layton will oversee OrthoAccel’s product engineering, design, development, and manufacturing, as well as supply chain, quality assurance, and customer service. Most recently he was the vice president of operations for Kyle, Texas-based Xtreme Power—a manufacturer of renewable energy storage systems.

As the leader of OrthoAccel’s sales division, Bukaty will oversee all aspects of business development and revenue growth. He comes to the company from Sarnova, a private, equity-backed specialty medical distribution business based in Dublin, Ohio, where he served as vice president of sales for Bound Tree Medical.

“Jeff Layton and Doug Bukaty are great additions to OrthoAccel’s senior management team, and we know that their strong records of success in operations and sales will help fuel our next level of growth as the leader in accelerated orthodontics,” said Mike Lowe, president and CEO of OrthoAccel.
