He also served on the board of Orthosensor Inc., a leader in orthopedic sensor technologies, from 2010 until its sale to Stryker in 2020. Mr. Aguero graduated with Honors from The University of Florida with a BSBA in Business Finance. Our Board has determined that Mr. Aguero’s experience as a director of medical technology companies qualifies him to serve as a member of our Board.
Mr. Treadwell has been a director of Visteon, an automotive supplier focused on cockpit electronics, since August 2012. He has also served on the boards of Flagstar Bank, Inc.

Prior to that, he served as Oxford Automotive’s Chief Executive Officer from 2004 to 2005. Mr. Treadwell graduated from University of Michigan in 1976 with high honors, BBA in Business.

In connection with the appointments, on April 29, 2021, the Company entered into certain letter agreements and indemnification agreements with Mr. Aguero and Mr. Treadwell, which are substantially similar to the letter agreement and indemnification agreements, respectively, entered into by the other directors in connection with the Company’s initial public offering.
