Mr. O'Dell, an experienced sales and marketing executive, joins Caliber's Board of Directors as it revamps its global sales and marketing program. Most recently, Mr. O'Dell, age 67, was Executive Vice President–Sales & Marketing at DUSA Pharmaceuticals, Inc., where he helped lead the company's reorganization, turnaround and eventual sale to Sun Pharma for $230 million. Prior to this, he held a series of positions of increasing responsibility at West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., culminating as Vice President of Marketing & Strategic Business Development.

Mr. O'Dell said, "During my years in the healthcare industry, I have learned that introducing innovative and disruptive technologies to the marketplace has been the cornerstone to success. I am extremely encouraged by Caliber I.D.'s success in developing the VivaScope® system, an innovative and comprehensive suite of technology solutions with applications in dermatology, surgery and research. Although Caliber already has a stellar group of customers that spans leading clinical and medical centers, cosmetic companies and academia, I believe there is much more potential in the marketplace for the VivaScope system. I look forward to working with Caliber's management team to increase awareness and sales of VivaScope in the global markets."
L. Michael Hone, Chief Executive Officer of Caliber I.D., said, "William O'Dell brings a tremendous amount of industry experience to Caliber I.D., and we are truly honored to have him serve on our Board.
