null

STOCKHOLM, DECEMBER 11, 2019 –In order to continue our strategic drive to grow the health care business and align our sales and marketing efforts the role Chief Commercial Officer has been created. With the recent FDA clearance for Coala in the US and the subsequent launch in the US, Germany and soon the Netherlands, the professional segment is becoming a more important focus for Coala Life and we expect that segment to generate the major part of our growth.

Christian, who has a MSc in Industrial engineering from Chalmers University in Sweden and ETH in Zurich, joined Coala Life in March 2019 as International Business manager. He has a solid background in the medical device and health services field from Neoventa Medical, Mölnlycke Healthcare and most recently Memira.

The new role reports to the CEO and Christian joins the executive management team. Our global marketing and Swedish sales team reports to the CCO.

The CMO role, held by Titti Lundgren who joined Coala Life in 2015, ceases to exist and Titti leaves the company at the end of 2019 after having tirelessly worked to make Coala known primarily in Sweden. We thank her for her efforts and wish her all the best.

About Coala Life

Hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar är en av de främsta anledningar till att människor dör världen över. Anledningen är i många fall en sen diagnos. Coala Life bildades 2004 av läkare och svenska entreprenörer för att ändra på det. Nu är resultatet här. Genom att ersätta ett analogt verktyg från 1800-talet, stetoskopet, med en digital lösning som både registrerar hjärtljud, EKG och hjärtfrekvens. En unik lösning som både lyssnar, mäter och analyserar, och som möjliggör att många hjärtsjukdomar kan upptäckas och behandlas i tid. Bland annat förmaksflimmer som ökar risken för stroke betydligt. En rad patent ligger till grund för detta svenska världsunika system, Coala, som gör det möjligt för var och en att själv screena och följa sitt hjärta, i tät kontakt med läkare och kardiologer.
