TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Chris Riley

President
Beckman Coulter Diagnostics

The list of new medical instruments, diagnostic equipment and technological innovations that have rolled out in the 12 months since Riley took the helm as president of Beckman Coulter Diagnostics is mind-boggling, to say the least: The high-volume DxH 900 hematology analyzer with Early Sepsis Indicator and its sibling, the low-volume DxH 520 analyzer, were two crowd-pleasers on display at the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Laboratory Expo in Chicago in July. But if you don’t know what those words mean or what those instruments can do, don’t worry — Riley, a former Videojet president, has you covered. Overseeing 11,000 highly trained associates, the Northwestern University graduate has a knack for simplifying complicated problems — and offering rational solutions to his portfolio of laboratory clients.
