UPPSALA, SWEDEN – LIDDS AB (publ) announces today that Anders Månsson will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer for LIDDS, effective September 1st 2022 succeeding Nina Herne.
Anders Månsson has broad experience from leading roles both in the biotech sector and in larger multinational pharmaceutical companies in an international setting over 25 years. His substantial experience in business development from serving as e.g VP & Head of Global Business Development in LEO Pharma will be important for LIDDS in driving the value of current and future collaborations. Anders also has considerable experience from sales & marketing; he has been the Managing Director of a subsidiary in Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and he has headed a major global business unit in LEO Pharma. His experience also includes board-level and executive appointments in biotech companies, and most recently Anders was the CEO of RhoVac.
“I am convinced Anders will be a great leader taking LIDDS to the next level with his experience from licensing and deal-making”, says Jan Törnell, chairman of LIDDS. “Anders has the right leadership capabilities to drive LIDDS and deliver on our business development activities and internal portfolio”.
“I see in LIDDS a company with a proprietary technology platform, that already has a proof of concept with multiple compounds in clinical trials, and that can be applied and licensed over and over again with different known APIs and in different indications where targeted controlled release brings a significant therapeutic advantage”, says Anders Månsson. “I see these opportunities for licensing as virtually endless and, as such, I am thrilled to join the company at this early stage of its growth journey.”
Anders will join LIDDS September 1st.
“We would like to thank Nina for developing LIDDS in an excellent way”, says Jan Törnell “She has successfully led LIDDS through an important transformation period building the organization, creating a strategic vision, and optimizing its processes and portfolio creating a much stronger and solid LIDDS”.
Nina will remain as CEO until Anders is in place to secure a smooth transition.
Nina is leaving LIDDS due to personal reasons.
