The company has named Johan Johansson as Vice President of Operations, Research and Development.
He begins the role immediately at the company’s headquarters in Lund.

This expertise aligns well with our strategic goals and Johan is a valuable addition to our management team,” says Dignitana CEO Catarina Mård Löwenadler.
