The company taps Co-founder and Chairman Shimon Eckhouse to be its new chief executive.

Syneron Medical (ELOS) has put a familiar person on its CEO throne. The company named Shimon Eckhouse as its new chief executive, effective immediately. He succeeds Louis Scafuri, who will "remain available" to the firm through the current quarter to aid in the transition.

Eckhouse is a founder of the company and the chairman of its board. Prior to his tenure at Syneron, he served as CEO at ESC Medical Systems and filled the same role at ColorChip. Syneron director Michael Anghel said, "[Eckhouse] has a deep understanding of the Company's strategy, management team, business potential and industry trends."
