Mahesh Mansukhani Named CEO at WillowWood

Mahesh Mansukhani Named CEO at WillowWood

Propelled by sustained growth and changing dynamics in the Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) industry, WillowWood has named Mahesh Mansukhani chief executive officer and Daniel Rubin executive vice president, strategy and corporate development. Ryan Arbogast, who previously held the CEO role, becomes executive chairman of the board and will remain company president.

“Mahesh and I are aligned on a vision for WillowWood’s growth and expansion focused on enabling O&P practitioners to exceed the expectations of their patients,” said Arbogast. “It’s an opportune time for Mahesh to bring his proven leadership ability back into our industry to help us realize this vision and our mission of leveling the playing field for those challenged with limb loss.”

Mansukhani brings more than twenty years of leadership experience including five years at the helm at Ossur, a leading prosthetics and bracing manufacturer. He has served in CEO roles within the healthcare and technology sectors, most recently as president and CEO of REPOWER America, a major U.S. provider of residential solar power solutions.

“It’s exciting to return to the O&P industry during a period of consolidation, and when demonstrating outcomes is becoming a real obligation for the profession,” said Mansukhani. “This creates a great opportunity for WillowWood to ensure O&P clinicians continue to have a true choice in delivering solutions for amputees. It’s extremely compelling for me to come on board at this time.”

Rubin brings deep experience to the executive vice president role. He served with Mansukhani at REPOWER America and led global high-growth material science businesses at DuPont for more than 25 years.

“This is an opportune time to demonstrate leadership in the O&P field by driving innovation in products and services,” commented Rubin. “I feel extremely fortunate to join the more than a century long legacy of WillowWood with its steadfast commitment to the amputee community.”

“Daniel brings a proven ability to grow businesses internationally, and his presence builds upon our strong leadership core going forward,” said Arbogast.
