John Bartos serves as the executive sponsor for the Cameron Artificial Heart team.  He was named corporate Vice President, Development and Technology for Cameron in May, 2007. He is responsible for identifying and implementing new technology that support Cameron’s engineering processes and product development initiatives.


Bartos had served as vice president, engineering and product development for Cameron’s Compression Systems division since 2003. He joined Cameron in 2000 as vice president, engineering for Compression Systems’ centrifugal compressor business and also held leadership roles in the division’s Lean Six Sigma program as well as in reciprocating engineering, information technology and technical training functions.


Before joining Cameron, Bartos held similar positions with Ingersoll-Rand and with A-C Compressor. He has a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ.

Full Description

In November 2010 the Texas Heart Institute contacted Cameron asking if they would participate with them from an engineering standpoint in the design and development of the next generation total artificial heart.  The doctors contacted Cameron based on the fact that they have significant expertise in the design of all kinds of pumps and compressors, plus the fact that Cameron is going to be around to support it.  Cameron agreed to take this on and we put together the engineering team that exists today.  The engineers work on this on a voluntary basis.
