Rodney Jones

Head of Sales Americas/ Technical Advisor Asia

For the past several years I have had the great fortune to travel around the world sharing, teaching, and learning with other dedicated medical professionals how we can improve organ transplant outcomes and increase the number of people who receive lifesaving transplants. When we combine great minds and cutting-edge technology together, we can move to a point in medicine where no one must die waiting for an organ transplant. This is my passion, my motivation, my inspiration; every day to do my best, using the tools and support that XVIVO provides me with to help others. My professional satisfaction comes directly from helping others succeed. And when we can bring together and share knowledge from diverse cultures we can lift all of society regardless of demographic differences.

This past year I have been working alongside of my colleagues to bring together one of the most successful lung transplant programs in the world, The Cleveland Clinic, and one of the quickest developing lung transplant programs in the world, The Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital together for an opportunity to develop a clinical and research collaboration. I look forward to continuing to help new and underserved regions around the world develop transplant programs that will improve the lives of their communities and eliminate deaths while waiting for an organ transplant.

I am proud and honored to be a part of such an extraordinary team at XVIVO that has such a vision.

Estelle Peslerbe

Regional Business Manager South Europe/ South America

My name is Estelle Peslerbe. For the past years I’ve been serving as the Regional Business Manager in South Europe- recently also for South America, caring for products aiding patients living with their end stage lung disease.

I’ve always had a big interest in medical science, ground breaking techniques and caring for other people, that is why I applied for my job at XVIVO.

Working at XVIVO is being a link in the chain of acts and people who ensure that the greatest gift of life from a donor will be well taken care of while being transported, evaluated and transplanted into the patient in need of new lungs.

I like to be part of evolving therapies/protocols that are changing the future of transplantation, like the ex vivo lung perfusion is doing. It is very rewarding to see how the transplants centres around the world are increasing the number of patients transplanted using lungs that would never have been used without EVLP.

I like being challenged, learning new things and working with people that is dedicated to what they do both in their heart and mind, this is one major thing that I’m experiencing at XVIVO, everyone is in this together- challenging each other, the research and the way forward.

Every day is a new day, unique in its kind, I’m visiting partners throughout the globe discussing the challenges and opportunities they are facing, experiencing new cultures, sharing and learning new things and meeting colleagues. The people I meet every day at work, (no matter if) they are working in the OR, logistics, administration or other are ultimately sharing the same vision, no one should have to die waiting for an organ.

The biggest award that one could get is when I learn from the partner that a new life have been saved.

It is a huge privilege to work with dedicated people in a very special world, that organ transplantation is – pushing boundaries every day to help the patient.
