The medical-technology company on Tuesday said it has tapped Richard Heppenstall as the finance chief for ZimVie. He most recently served as CFO of Breg Inc., a provider of orthopedic braces, cold therapy and other medical equipment.
Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc. said ZimVie would be the name of its spine and dental business it plans to spin off and tapped executives to helm the company.

The seeds for ZimVie were planted when CEO Bryan Hanson took the helm at Zimmer Biomet in December 2017 and was tasked with righting the ship.
The company had struggled with quality control and supply chain problems for about a year at that point, and those challenges had created investor frustration that ultimately led to former CEO David Dvorak’s resignation in July 2017.
In October 2018, Hanson told investors that Zimmer Biomet would have to reduce the size of its portfolio to simplify the supply chain and improve service levels to customers.
