Sedana Medical AB (publ) recruits new Nordic Sales Manager
Sedana Medical AB (“Sedana Medical” or “the Company”) is recruiting Thor Sundsvik as its Nordic Sales Manager and is thus established in the Nordic region with its own sales organization. Thor Sundsvik joins from Linde Healthcare and will take up his duties at Sedana Medical on 25 September 2017.
Alongside the ongoing clinical study being conducted in Germany and ahead of planned marketing authorisation for the medicinal product IsoConDa® (isoflurane) in Europe, Sedana Medical is building up an international sales organisation of its own in its principal markets, supplemented by external distributors in other markets.
Sedana Medical several years ago established a presence with its own sales organisation in Germany, where its medical device AnaConDa is now sold. AnaConDa is a patented medical device with a unique technology making it possible to sedate patients with volatile anaesthetics, IsoConDa, in intensive care units, so called inhalation sedation. A separate direct sales organisation was also set up some time ago in France, and is starting to bear fruit. Now, in the autumn of 2017, it is time for the Company to open the door to its own direct sales of AnaConDa in the Nordic Region as well, and make preparations for the launch of the future medicinal product the IsoConDa.
“We are proud that we are taking this step in our development. The Nordic Region, which is our domestic market, is important to us. This is entirely in line with our strategy of independently developing inhalation sedation therapy in intensive care and expansion of our own sales organisation in several European countries. We are consequently taking a major step towards realising our vision of making inhalation sedation with IsoConDa and AnaConDa a global standard of care treatment for the sedation of mechanically ventilated patients in intensive care,” says Christer Ahlberg, CEO of Sedana Medical AB (publ).
