With appreciation

We want to express our gratitude and appreciation to Lonny Carpenter, Group President and Advisor to the CEO, who is retiring from Stryker on March 31, 2019, and David Floyd, Group President and Advisor to the CEO, who will retire on June 30, 2019.

Lonny has had an amazing career and left a wonderful legacy in his 30 years with the company, playing major roles in helping us grow into the Fortune 250 Company that we are today. David has made significant contributions to the growth and success of the company since joining in 2012, including his role in spearheading numerous acquisitions, such as Mako Surgical and Small Bone Innovations.

Our best wishes to them both.
