Stutzman Reward With New Job

Marlin Stutzman Rewarded 
for 2015 Congressional Vote

In June 2015, Congressman Marlin Stutzman voted to repeal a tax on medical device sales.  After the bill was passed, Stutzman was quoted:  "By removing this unfair burden from the backs of our innovators and manufacturers we can take an important step toward strengthening our economy."  His congressional district included Warsaw, home to many of the state's 20,000 jobs in the medical devise industry. Several companies produce orthopedic implants.

On Wednesday, February 1, Stutzman - a farmer turned politician - was rewarded by being named President of WishBone Medical, Inc., a new pediatric orthopedic company.  WishBone Medical, Inc. was recently founded by Nick A. Deeter who serves as CEO and Board Chairman.  Deeter commented, "We are thrilled to have Marlin on the team. His passion and drive for what we are doing and the kids we are committed to helping is unmatched.  I truly believe that his experience as a U.S. Congressman will help WishBone Medical take a different approach to this industry.  Exciting things to come for sure."

After serving six years as a Congressman in northeast Indiana, Stutzman was defeated in 2016 in his bid for the Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate.  His congressional term ended at the end of 2016.
