Clifton-based Blickman Industries, a leader in stainless steel manufacturing for the healthcare industry, announced a new leadership structure led by new owner and CEO Anthony Lorenzo. He brings with him a wealth of experience in business management and immense enthusiasm and knowledge regarding the medical device industry.
Anthony Lorenzo is a well-established financial specialist—working at the senior level for renowned companies such as Morgan Stanley, Citadel Investment Group and the Royal Bank of Canada—and will be leading the strategic direction of Blickman. “I have invested in hundreds of large public companies during my career in asset management, and decided it was time to take everything I learned during my 20-year investment career and apply it to Blickman,” he says. His goal is to drive the company forward through the combination of his vision for investing in successful growth strategies and Blickman’s extensive industry history, reputation and success.
“I am very excited to be joining the Blickman family,” states Lorenzo. “I am impressed with the solid history, quality of the products and the strong reputation of the Blickman brand. As a member of the advisory board at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, I have seen firsthand how patient experiences can be meaningfully enhanced with simple but elegant solutions to improve quality of care. An example is the Nezzie Patient Ambulation Device.” The Nezzie was named a winner in the all-important Safety category in the 2015 Excellence in Surgical Products (ESP) Awards sponsored by Surgical Products Magazine.
“At this stage, Blickman has a tremendous amount of potential for long-term growth,” says Lorenzo. “Our plan is to build from our established reputation and innovative product portfolio to continue to provide our customers with state-of-the-art products and services that are safe, reliable and reasonably priced.”
