Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has introduced a new CEO.

In a Nov. 19 announcement, the DME manufacturer said its board of directors has approved Robert Size to take over as CEO.

He replaces Bob Gilligan, who became Drive’s CEO in December 2017.

John Compton, chairman of the board, said of the change, “We thank Bob Gilligan for his leadership and valuable contributions to Drive. We are confident that Bob Size will lead Drive into a phase of further growth and customer satisfaction.”
