Offer Nonhoff is a seasoned executive with more than 20 years of experience in healthcare and other industries, including as CFO of Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA in Israel and the medical devices companies BoneSupport AB, based in Sweden, and Germany-based Lumenis for Europe, middle east and Africa. He joins Pixium Vision from his current role as CFO of the Israeli Artificial-Intelligence retailtech company Trigo.

“I am delighted to welcome Offer Nonhoff to Pixium Vision as our new CFO. Offer has an exceptional financial track record and he and I have successfully collaborated previously through a similar stage of a company’s development during our time with BoneSupport. Offer’s expertise will be a considerable asset for Pixium Vision as we advance the pivotal trial of our Prima System and prepare for commercial launch of this revolutionary bionic vision system for dry age-related macular degeneration in late 2023,” said Lloyd Diamond, CEO of Pixium Vision.
“I am excited to join Pixium Vision at this important inflection point in the growth of the company,” said Offer Nonhoff, CFO of Pixium Vision. “I am looking forward to working with Lloyd Diamond again as well as with the talented Pixium team and Board of Directors in contributing to the success of the Prima System and helping these patients to regain some of their vision. My initial focus will be to ensure the company and product remain well financed through clinical development and commercialization, including accessing the large US investment pool, potentially also through an initial public offering on NASDAQ that we are investigating.”
