I am convinced that he will be able to further develop what previous CEO Thomas Almesjö has been building in some extremely challenging years and lead ChromoGenics to success."

He has with energy and in an exemplary way executed extensive strategic changes and transformed ChromoGenics from a development company to a sales and production company including initial commercialization. Thomas will be available for knowledge transfer for some time,” says Anders Brännström and concludes by thanking Thomas for his valuable efforts during a very challenging period of ChromoGenics’ development.
