After 44 years of distinguished service, Howard E. Cox, Jr. has decided to retire from our Board of Directors.

Stryker’s Board and management team sincerely appreciate Howard’s unwavering dedication, his more than four decades of service and his championing of our growth ambitions and consistent success. On behalf of the Board and everyone at Stryker, we wish him all the best and salute him for his wisdom and guidance in helping Stryker deliver on its mission
