President and General Manager of KMC Systems, a leading medical equipment
manufacturer and a division of Elbit Systems of America, LLC effective July 1,
2013. Jellison has been with KMC Systems for nine years as the Director of
Business Development, securing new medical device contract manufacturing
customers and the growing existing customer relationships.
"Jellison's business development experience and industry knowledge made him
the natural choice to succeed outgoing General Manager Pat McNallen,"
commented Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "Pat
has provided KMC with superb leadership over the past 25 years, and I have
full confidence Ron will build on this strong foundation and lead KMC to
additional growth and success. Pat will now focus on assisting Elbit Systems

Jellison points out that KMC Systems has been achieving high customer
satisfaction and year-after-year revenue growth, through such strategies as
rapid product development, forward-thinking investments, off-the-shelf
technologies and increasing disposable design capabilities.
Off-the-shelf medical device technologies can be integrated into medical
programs with precision and speed. "These technologies ultimately benefit our
customers with reduced development times and costs, and lower manufacturing
costs," stated Jellison. "In other areas such as optics, microfluidics and
sensors, we will look for companies that want to partner with KMC so that we
can continue to provide innovation to our customers."
KMC has also implemented discreet event simulation allowing systems engineers
to explore various concept architectures' ability to meet product
requirements. "This provides our OEM customers with a high degree of
confidence in how system variables affect product performance," commented
Jellison. "This ultimately saves time and costs in medical device development
and minimizes design risks early on in the process."
Jellison further stated: "The emergence of point-of-care (POC) instrumentation
is driving the need for more focus on the relationship of instrumentation to
the disposable or consumable. We are seeing more complex cartridge-based
systems that are moving instrument functionalities to a single-test,
