Joakim Eurenius has been appointed Managing Director of Histolab Products AB as of 1 March 2024. He will transfer to Histolab from the position of Sales Director at Mediq Sweden. Prior to that, he has worked as Managing Director at Hartmann Scandinavia and country manager in the Smith&Nephew Group. Joakim has a specialist nursing degree and an MBA from the University of Gothenburg. 

The current Managing Director Olof Jenefeldt will resign on 29 February, but he will remain in the role of Senior Advisor to the Board until August 2024. Olof has been active for the past two decades as MD and owner in the company, which was founded by his father. He continued as MD also after the company was acquired by the Finnish Algol Group in 2012. The succession takes place in a spirit of good mutual understanding between Olof and the company.   

– I am grateful to Olof for his loyal, expert and dedicated leadership over a long period of time. During Olof's reign, Histolab has strengthened its position as a versatile and reliable specialist in products, solutions and services in the fields of cell diagnostics and tissue analysis. I wish him every success for the next phase of his professional life, says Alexander Bargum, Chairman of the Board in Histolab Products AB and CEO of the Algol Group. 

– At the same time, I wish Joakim Eurenius warmly welcome to Histolab. His background and his track record in sales and distribution of healthcare products are impressive. I am convinced that his enthusiasm and drive will help us to realise our ambitions for the future development of the company.  

– During the recruitment process, I have got a very good impression of Histolab. I really look forward to working together with the team in building on the success of previous years whilst also guiding the company onwards in an exciting and dynamic market, says Joakim Eurenius.
