“I first encountered Calmark in 2009 through the Go Global Medtech program, where the founders Mathias Karlsson and Sofia Hjort af Ornäs were among the participants. We have been in regular contact since Anna became the CEO, and I have followed the company’s journey with great interest.  It is very inspiring to get the chance to join the team now, in this exciting and expansionary phase,” says Annika Kaisdotter Andersson. “I hope that my broad background focused on quality will contribute to continued success for the company. It also warms my heart to get the opportunity to return to medtech!”

We already have a high level of competence in this area, thanks to Micke Lundh, and Annika will complement the team very well with her extensive experience from a variety of industries. I really look forward to welcoming her to the team!”
