GOTHENBURG, Sweden, December 10, 2021 – Isofol Medical AB (publ) (Nasdaq Stockholm: ISOFOL), today announced the appointment of Jenny Sundqvist as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) as of January 1, 2022. Jenny is currently the Head of Commercial and Strategy Development at Isofol. Former CCO, Tony Gustavsson, leaves Isofol for a new international assignment in a global pharmaceutical group.
In her new role as CCO, Jenny Sundqvist will be part of Isofol’s senior management team and will be responsible for implementing the commercial preparations that were intensified in 2021.

– To create the best possible conditions for the commercial launch, Isofol has already initiated several measures within the framework of our global preparation program. With Jenny at the helm, I am convinced that we will continue these efforts at the same pace in the future as well. At the same time, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony for his valuable efforts on behalf of Isofol and wish him the best of luck with his new prestigious assignment, says Ulf Jungnelius, CEO of Isofol.
– I look forward to taking on the CCO role and it is an honor to be responsible for the commercial preparations so that a new treatment alternative for advanced colorectal cancer may be offered to patients with this difficult disease. We have made significant progress with our commercial preparations and strengthened our collaboration with external partners to create the best possible conditions, says Jenny Sundqvist, incoming CCO at Isofol.
