MEDICOVER’S FOUNDER JONAS AF JOCHNICK HAS SUDDENLY PASSED AWAY
"It is with great sorrow that we have received the tragic message that Jonas of Jochnick has passed away. Personally, I have had the privilege of working near Jonas ever since the start of Medicover, following him and his entrepreneurship on a daily basis – always full of enthusiasm and ideas for new projects and initiatives”, Fredrik Rågmark, CEO of Medicover comments.
Jonas af Jochnick founded Oriflame Cosmetics together with his brother Robert in 1967. In the 1990s he invested in Medicover and has since been a true driving force behind the company's successful development from the first clinic in Poland to today's global operations and listed company. Jonas has been active in various positions in the company and for many years a member of the company's board, a position he held at his death.
Jonas af Jochnick was a strong entrepreneur and a true leader. He had a law degree from the University of Stockholm and an MBA from Harvard, and never stopped being open-minded about development and opportunities. His optimism, energy, sharp mind and big heart made him a very successful businessman and role model.
"The loss of Jonas will be immense to Medicover, both on a personal and professional level. Jonas' visionary and entrepreneurial leadership has contributed in a fundamental way to Medicover’s success and its corporate culture, something we will cherish on our journey ahead”, Fredrik Stenmo, Chairman of the Board of Medicover, comments.
Jonas of Jochnick was 81 years old. He leaves his wife Christina, their four children and many grandchildren behind.
