XVIVO strengthens management team

XVIVO Perfusion’s management team is being strengthened in order to ensure a continued good development of the company. Karin Fischer, who assumes the position of Marketing and Sales Director Americas, and Pär-Ola Larsson, who assumes the position of Marketing and Sales Director EMEA, have been recruited externally. Emur Jensen, Director of Development, and Jenny Wennerberg, Director of Quality, have been employees at XVIVO Perfusion for three and two years, respectively.

As of January 1, 2016, XVIVO Perfusion’s management team will consist of six people, three of whom are stationed in the USA and three in Sweden. This will increase the company’s presence in the important American market. At the same time the company’s present global Marketing and Sales Director, Christer de Flon will go into retirement. He will take on the role of consultant with the task of developing the Asian market, which the company assesses will develop at an increasingly fast rate in the future.
