Outgoing CEO Anders Lundqvist indicated to the Board earlier in the year that having reached the age of 65, he wished to retire from his role once an appropriate successor had been found. The search included multiple high-quality candidates from multiple geographies and following an exhaustive process Morten Henneveld, currently Senior Vice President, Business Transformation and Strategy and member of the Executive Leadership Team for GN Hearing, a global leader in hearing aids, has been appointed to the role. He will take up his position on 1st September 2020.
Chairman Simon Cartmell OBE commented: ‘Anders Lundqvist has overseen an extraordinary period of development for OssDsign. He led the private placement and IPO last year, has driven consecutive quarterly growth in line with our targets, has expanded our market presence with approvals and reimbursement in France and Japan in the past 12 months and has managed the planned transition from a master distributor to OssDsign USA Inc. He has delivered all we planned to do in 2019 and 2020 and is leaving with our thanks and best wishes for his retirement’.
In response, Lundqvist replied: ‘it has been my privilege to lead OssDsign these past 6 years and I am delighted to hand over the leadership to someone as well suited to the role as Morten Henneveld. The company under his direction is posed for exciting growth ahead and I wish him and the team at OssDsign all the best for the future’.
