Thanks to the variety of roles that he has held, René is familiar with our business, in particular in the healthcare industry, and he has gained a global insight into our core markets, the USA, Europe and Asia.

This will ensure a rapid onboarding and seamless transition in dialogue with our customers, shareholders, business partners, and our employees.”

With the IPO in 2021, medmix has developed a powerful and successful strategy, and on this basis, we now will move into the future together. Our focus will be on creating value for our customers and our shareholders by achieving sustained profitable growth and improving the way we run the company. I look forward to getting to know the different parts of our organization more, and to working with the dedicated and highly qualified teams worldwide.”
