Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will serve on the SHINE Medical Technologies board of directors now that he’s out of Congress, according to the local Janesville Gazette in his hometown. 

The company announced Ryan’s appointment in a press release on Monday, calling Ryan a “visionary” and pointing to the former top lawmaker’s “deep mastery” of important global policy that will be crucial to the role.

“Paul will provide critical guidance to SHINE as we expand into domestic and international markets that require deep mastery of global policy, economics and leadership,” SHINE executive Greg Piefer said in the statement.

The medical technology company just launched the construction of a new facility in Janesville, Wisconsin that will work to produce the radioactive compound called Moly-99 which is used to examine bone and body tissue in medical tests. Both Ryan’s grandfather and great-grandfather died of heart attacks and said in a statement he believes the company is “equipped to create a reliable global supply of lifesaving medical isotopes.”
