The Toshiba veteran will be tasked with "exploring new avenues of growth in healthcare," a particular focus for the larger company as part of its global 2020 plan.

Ryan will be based in Ridgefield Park, N.J. He'll be in charge of Samsung's line of advanced healthcare systems, but also coordinate with recently acquired NeuroLogica, which makes imaging equipment, and Nexus DX, which makes diagnostic equipment.
