Anneli Palm has been a member of the board since 2009 and she will replace her father, Erling Holmlund, as chairman.
Palm has since 2009 worked actively to pursue and structure the board’s work. She brings skills as an administrator and her passion for a strong and healthy company culture to the company, it states in a press release.
“Now that Mercodia has over 80 employees, people sometimes tell me that we no longer can be a small and intimate company, but with the right mindset I think it is possible. All parts of the business from R&D, marketing and sales to production are still under the same roof, at our location in Uppsala. This allows for everyone to know one another and for shorter decision paths, making product development so much easier,” says Palm.
At the same as Palm takes over as chairman, Bertil Ahlqvist steps up as board member, replacing Anders Lönnqvist.
“The new board will continue developing the company towards maintain its position as a leading manufacturer of laboratory tests and provider of bioanalytical services. It is important for us to be in the front edge of research and to have a good relationship with researchers within our fields and to be responsive to our customers´ needs,” says Anneli Palm.
