"After many years of working in Sweden, Robin Wright has decided to leave Karolinska Development to take up a new role in the UK to be nearer to his family. We understand and respect his decision and we thank him for his significant contributions to the company’s progress. At the same time, it is a pleasure to welcome Christian Tange to the CFO position. Christian has a strong track record as CFO and his experience in healthcare M&A and business development matches perfectly with Karolinska Development’s current focus. I am looking forward to working with him in future deals", says Torbjörn Bjerke, CEO of Karolinska Development.
