“It’s an honor to take on the position of chief financial officer at Getinge Group during an extremely exciting period at the company,” said Fabricius.
After 23 years as CFO, Ulf Grunander has decided to retire from his position. He will continue to contribute to the Group as a senior advisor up until the 2016 Annual General Meeting.
Alex Myers commented, “Ulf has been of considerable importance to Getinge for many years and has been a cornerstone in developing Getinge into a global medical device company with world-leading positions. I would like to express my gratitude to Ulf for his professional and dedicated work. I am especially grateful to have had Ulf by my side since I joined the company as CEO in March this year. He has been a solid partner in setting the future plan for the company and has contributed his extensive experience and expertise throughout the process.”
“The decision to retire from Getinge has by no means been an easy one. However, after 23 great years with Getinge, it’s now the right time for a new chapter in my life and spend more time with my family,” said Grunander. “I wish Pernille the best of luck in her new role as CFO at Getinge.”
