Ms. Tipton joined Sensus in June of 2021 as the Director of Digital Marketing, revamping the company’s social media and on-line outreach, which resulted in a dramatic increase in patient and physician inquiries. She has also worked closely with the company’s clinical, sales, and engineering teams to provide a more comprehensive approach to the product portfolio. As an experienced marketing professional with a record of success, she was President of Tipton Group, a marketing consulting firm prior to joining Sensus.

He holds a B.S. in physics from San Jose State University and an MBA from Santa Clara University, Leavey School of Business.
Mr. Lura has two decades of experience in medical aesthetics, bringing new products to market at such notable companies as Cynosure, Eclipse Medical, DefenAge Skincare, Zimmer Medical Systems, Cutera, and Lumenis. He will be responsible for expanding Sensus’ aesthetics footprint as the company continues to add to its product portfolio, and developing opportunities for product introductions including developing a total solution bundle for Sensus customers. Mr. Lura brings to Sensus deep relationships with industry KOLs and dermatologists. He holds a B.A. in communications from Concordia University Texas, attended the United States Airforce Academy and was a commissioned Second Lieutenant in the Air Force ROTC at the University of Texas, Austin.

I am delighted to announce these promotions and appointments and look forward to the contributions of these talented individuals as Sensus executes on an aggressive business strategy,” said Joe Sardano, chairman and chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. “Maggie Martinez has proven over and over again her initiative, drive and commitment to the company, our customers and patients and I am proud of her appointment to Chief Operating Officer. In just a short period of time, Emiliano Sosa has distinguished himself in assembling a high-quality team of engineers who are adding exceptional value to our technologies. His leadership skills and technical acumen ideally qualify him to serve as our Chief Technical Officer. Stephanie Tipton has been a creative force in digital marketing for the company, and going forward she is charged with assuming a leadership role in all aspects of marketing. She will be instrumental in supporting the introduction of new products to the marketplace, an important initiative for Sensus.”
Mr. Sardano added, “Our anticipated growth has necessitated the expansion of our senior management team. I’m thrilled Sean Delany has joined Sensus as Vice President of Regulatory and Quality Assurance. Sean comes to us with deep experience navigating regulatory pathways not only in the U.S., but in all of Asia, the EU and South America. His knowledge will be valuable as we work to secure regulatory clearances for our products – both existing and new – around the world. Additionally, we look forward to even greater success with our growing aesthetics product portfolio with Wayne Lura at the helm. His appointment underscores our plans to expand our aesthetic footprint with innovative products. Wayne has a wealth of contacts and enjoys excellent relationships with the leaders in aesthetic medicine.
