Albumedix Ltd. (‘Albumedix’), the world leader in recombinant human albumin (rAlb), announced today its succession plan as Peter Rosholm, after 13 years leading the company, has decided to step down as CEO and handover the company’s leadership. Peter’ successor as Chief Executive Officer is his long-standing colleague, and the Company’s Chief Operating Officer since the 2017 management buyout, Jonas Skjødt Møller, effective 1 July, 2020. Peter will stay operational with the company for a period, to ensure a smooth transition, and remain an active advisor and member of the Board of Directors, as the majority shareholder of the company.

We are delighted that we will continue to benefit from his experience in an operational role for a period and in an advisory role going forward.”

Jonas brings extensive operational experience from the biopharmaceutical industry and from 8 years within the business. His deep knowledge of the company stems from having held an array of positions, including within the labs and on the front-line with customers, and he has been a critical co-driver behind the recent growth, together with the Executive Leadership Team.
Don DeBethizy continued: “Jonas has been a highly respected and very talented member of the Executive Leadership Team as Chief Operating Officer for the past few years. He has a proven track record and breadth of business experience which are critical to sustain, and accelerate, the positive growth trajectory that Albumedix is experiencing. With a strong focus on leading with innovation, commitment to developing our people and to our core values, and a drive to forge valued relationships, Jonas is well-placed to continue building on this momentum and has been the natural choice to take over leadership of Albumedix.”
Commenting on his appointment, Jonas Skjødt Møller said: “I am honored to take Albumedix forward as CEO, solidifying our position as world leaders in recombinant human albumin. The opportunities ahead are game changing, especially today as we witness the need globally for rapidly scalable vaccine platforms and advanced therapies to significantly transform lives. The vision is to empower excellence: in how we as a business operate and create products and services of the highest quality; but also to enable our customers and partners to excel in the development of transformative therapies, and thereby support life sciences and patients equally. I’m excited to spearhead this new wave of growth, take the reins and build on a shared legacy with an ambition to enable superior therapies worldwide.”
