Integrity Applications, which is currently developing noninvasive glucometer GlucoTrak, has announced a major leadership shakeup. Cofounder and previous CEO Avner Gal has stepped down. In his place, serving as CEO and Chairman, will be John Graham, an 18-year veteran of pharmaceutical company Aventis. Additionally, Angela Strand, a previous Proteus Digital Health VP, will serve as vice chair.

"John is clearly the leader for Integrity's future, and he has the unanimous support of the Board of Directors. We've selected a very strong leader at a time when Integrity is transitioning from a development to a commercial stage company," Strand said in a statement. "John's extensive track record of building successful companies and deep understanding of the diabetes market will enable us to realize our goal of making GlucoTrack the worldwide standard of care for people with diabetes."

Also out: COO Eran Cohen and board member Phil Darivoff. Gal's cofounder David Malka, who serves as vice president, will see his duties expanded. Of note, the company added a new CFO last month.
