Joacim Lindoff will be Acting President and CEO of Getinge Group
The Board of Directors of infection control firm Getinge AB of Sweden has decided to replace the President and CEO of the Getinge Group, which means that Alex Myers is leaving his position.
In the interim, the Board has appointed Joacim Lindoff as Acting President and CEO.
Lindoff is currently President of Getinge Surgical Workflows and a member of the Executive Team.
The change will be effective immediately.
Carl Bennet, Getinge's Chairman, said: 'The Board of Directors and Alex Myers have different views on the future direction of the Getinge Group and the board has therefore concluded that a replacement of the President & CEO is necessary.'
Lindoff has been with Getinge since 1999 and has experience from different senior leading positions within the Group.
He was recently Executive Vice President of the Infection Control business area, and since 1 January 2016, headed Getinge Surgical Workflows and is a member of the Executive Team.
The process to recruit a new President and CEO of the Getinge Group will start at once.
