Preston Wells, the current vice president of investor relations, will be appointed vice president, group CFO for Stryker’s orthopedics and spine businesses.

Beach will work closely with Boehnlein and Wells to ensure a smooth transition.

“I am excited about the commercial experience and financial discipline that Jason will bring to our investor relations team,” Boehnlein said. “I would also like to thank Preston for strengthening our investor relations capabilities and supporting our company’s growth.”

He joined Stryker in 2018, and in his latest leadership role as vice president of finance at Stryker’s Instruments division, he supported market-leading growth of this business and successfully closed and integrated 10 acquisitions. He also led the statutory accounting principles implementation for the division’s financial service functions.

In addition, Beach has been responsible for planning, implementing, managing and controlling all financial activities for the division and led the Instruments’ business development function.
