Mr. DeSisto said, "I am grateful and deeply honored to have had the opportunity to lead Insulet over the past thirteen years.
While I am very proud of all that the Company has achieved, I am most proud in knowing that the OmniPod has given the freedom and simplicity of tubeless pumping to more than 60,000 people living with diabetes.
We have passed many important milestones over the years, and I am delighted that we have been able to attract a proven corporate leader of Pat's ability to lead Insulet
through its next phase of growth and development.
On a personal note, I would like to thank the talented Insulet
team for all that we achieved together and to wish everyone at Insulet
the very best for the future."
Mr. Levangie added, "On behalf of the entire Board of Directors and everyone at Insulet
, we thank Duane
