“I’m delighted to welcome Anders Kristensson as Chief Executive Officer of TikoMed”, said Dr. Stefan Sallerfors, Chairman of TikoMed. “Anders experience from big pharma and his entrepreneurial background are tremendous assets, that will allow TikoMed to take next steps and prepare for an exit through a partnering deal or trade sale in the next 12-18 months.
