New CEO at Gyros AB

15-Jan-2008

Lars Eric Utterman takes over as acting CEO after Jan Würtz

Jan Würtz has worked diligently to implement the strategies set by the board during his years as CEO. A significant and growing market for Gyros’ products is now emerging. In the phase of change that lays ahead a CEO with a different profile is required.

Until a permanent CEO is assigned Lars Eric Utterman will serve as acting CEO.

Utterman has extensive experience in the Biotech and Life Science industry. In particular, his skills in the area of marketing and sales of capital equipment for life science research will be an important asset at Gyros.

Lars Eric Utterman is well renowned in the industry. His informal and enthusiastic way of involvement is known to bring energy into organisations and processes.

The board and the major investors are confident about Gyros’ technology and its employee’s ability to turn Gyros into a successful company.
