RAMCON appoints Axel Sjöblad as CEO and Jesper Hardt as Chairman of the Board
RAMCON has seen significant growth over the recent years, with acquisitions in the Nordic countries, strong development in key segments, and a central role in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic as key drivers. With a strong foundation in place, it is perfect timing for RAMCON to make a strategic change by assigning a new CEO and a new Chairman of the Board.
The change means that Jesper Hardt, currently CEO, replaces Derrick Miller, who has successfully led RAMCON since 2006, and becomes Chairman of the Board, and that Axel Sjöblad is appointed new CEO. Axel Sjöblad has extensive experience in managing and developing growth companies in medical technology and Life Science. He was most recently CEO of SenzaGen AB. Prior to working for SenzaGen AB, Sjöblad was CEO of BioGaia AB, President Sales and Service North Europe and CEO of Getinge Sverige AB and Regional Vice President Northern European Markets at Gambro with responsibility for subsidiaries running operations in several European countries. He holds an MBA and an EMBA from Stockholm School of Economics. He is Chairman of the Board of VibroSense Dynamics AB and former elite player in handball.
Jesper Hardt has this to say about the change and new era:
“Being a part of RAMCON for the past 22 years, 13 of them as CEO, I’m thrilled to see the company that RAMCON has become. The Board and I are in full alignment that it is time for bringing in a seasoned CEO to lead RAMCON moving forward. I’m very satisfied with Axel Sjöblad as the chosen candidate.”
Axel Sjöblad has this to say about his new role:
“I am very happy to join RAMCON, which is a high performing company with a strong track-record, robust processes, a very capable organization and values that fit with mine. I look forward to lead RAMCONs future growth journey and to further develop the organization together with the great team that is already in place."
RAMCON thanks Jesper Hardt for his strong, inspiring, and committed leadership throughout the years and look forward to using his knowledge and expertise as the Chairman of the Board.
