June 2012 Corporate Roundtable

Enhance your understanding of the Japanese market with the Japan America Society of Minnesota Corporate Roundtable, a business forum featuring speakers from the Board of Directors, corporate member companies, and their colleagues visiting from Japan.


This month’s meeting will focus on the success story of American Medical Systems (AMS) in Japan. AMS was established in 1972 and focused on solutions for prostate cancer survivors. Today, AMS is an international premiere medical device company focusing on urological, gynecological and colorectal health solutions. AMS holds offices all over the world including, but not limited to, Sydney, Tokyo and Shanghai.


The guest speaker at this event will be Michael E. Ryan of American Medical Systems (AMS). Mr. Ryan is the Vice President and General Manager in the Asia Pacific, Latin America and Canada regions at AMS. Mr. Ryan has been managing global markets for 22+ years and led the AMS Japan device portfolio assessment resulting in three therapy device approvals.
