Steadman organizations name CEO

J. Richard Steadman, MD, managing partner and founder of The Steadman Clinic, and Marc Philippon, MD, managing partner of Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI), announced on October 16 that Tom Mars, a former Walmart executive and SPRI board member, is new chief executive officer of both organizations, located in Vail, CO.

Before retiring from Walmart in March, Mars was Walmart’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer.

Steadman noted, “We knew Tom from his work on the SPRI board, but what really impressed us during the hiring process was how passionate he is about applying his talent and experience to the mission of our nonprofit research institute: Keeping people of all ages physically active through orthopedic research and education.”
