Rank #11: Why Keeping The End in Mind is Critical for Every Medtech Entrepreneur: Interview with Erica Rogers, CEO of Silk Road Medical

Podcast cover
Read more

In this two-part interview, I was lucky enough to sit down with Erica Rogers, CEO of Silk Road Medical. We first spoke a few years ago and then again much more recently to catch up on what had changed at Silk Road since our first conversation.

During our catch up, we discussed how Erica led her team at Silk Road through PMA approval, successful insurance coverage and reimbursement strategy, which led to a very rewarding public offering for Silk Road, opening at $20 a share. This resulted in the opportunity to continue the company’s goal, which is to change the standard of care in carotid artery disease with their TCAR procedure.

Much of our first conversation was about Erica’s career trajectory and how she was able to successfully, and gracefully, exit multiple medtech companies. Her lengthy career and insight as a medtech thought leader is just as interesting today as it was when we recorded our conversation.

Before leading Silk Road, Erica was the COO of Medicines360, a nonprofit pharmaceutical company developing drugs and devices for women. Erica was the founder and CEO of Allux Medical as well as the cofounder of Visiogen, which was acquired by Abbott Medical Optics in 2009.

Prior to that, Erica spent over 12 years at Boston Scientific in a variety of sales and marketing positions. She began her career in pharmaceutical sales after receiving a B.S. in Zoology from San Diego State University. Erica holds five issued and 15 pending US patents for medical devices in nanotechnology.
