Mr. Loarie’s curiosity and interest in leadership, innovation, start-ups, economics, and health care has led him to become a top reviewer for Amazon.com and a columnist for the Catholic Business Journal. Perhaps this is a throw-back to his childhood, growing up in a media/communications family.

Mr. Loarie's grandfather, Richard J. Finnegan, co-founded the Chicago Times (today's Chicago Sun-Times). And his father, Willard J. Loarie, was executive vice president for J. Walter Thompson advertising agency. The Loarie family home in Deerfield, Illinois, was often filled with reporters, editorial cartoonists (including Herblock), politicians, TV stars, and other media personalities.

He presently serves on the board of directors for The Refocus Group (Dallas), is a member of the Deans Council, Jacobs School of Engineering at University of California San Diego (UCSD), and a member of the U.S. Advisory Board for Enterprise Ireland.

Mr. Loarie previously served as Chairman and CEO of Mercator MedSystems; Co-founder and Chairman of CardioProfile, Inc.; CEO and Chairman of KeraVision, Inc; COO of Novacor, Inc.; as President of American Heyer-Schulte (Division of American Hospital Supply, now Baxter, Inc.), and as a Trustee of the Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley. He was also an Assistant Professor of Surgery, Creighton University Medical School, a member of University of California's (Berkeley) Mechanical Engineering Advisory Board, and a board member for several privately-held medical technology companies.

Mr. Loarie is a published writer, a sought-after speaker in the field of medical technology and entrpreneurism, and an accomplished cartoonist and oil painter. He has lectured at the Anderson School of Management (UCLA), the Haas Business School (UC Berkeley), and at the Graziadeo School of Business and Management (Pepperdine).

He is active in the Catholic Church and known within the Diocese of Oakland for his 18+ years as Program Chair for Catholics@Work and as co-leader of SING, a parish-based ministry focused on helping those who are in-transition.

Mr. Loarie received his B.S.M.E. from the University of Notre Dame and went to graduate school at the Universities of Chicago (Booth) and Minnesota (Carlson).

Accessible and direct, Mr. Loarie is quick to acknowledge—first by action, then by words—the profound anchor of his life, his Catholic faith, in all his endeavors. This is the basis for his passion to help improve/save lives with innovative and much-needed medical products. He may be reached at TLoarie@CatholicBusinessJournal.biz
