Hanna Merikanto, currently Business Unit Director in Onemed Oy, is from today 3 May, appointed country manager for Asker Healthcare Group in Finland and Managing Director for Onemed Oy. Hanna succeeds Markus Henriksson who after 13 years in the group has decided to pursue new opportunities.

“I’m pleased that Hanna has accepted to lead our Finnish operations going forward. She has a proven track record as a leader and in growing her business unit by always having the customer in focus and finding new innovative solutions to improve the life of the patients. I also want to take the opportunity to thank Markus Henriksson for successfully taking us to become a true partner to the healthcare sector in Finland”, says Johan Falk, CEO Asker Healthcare Group.

To further facilitate scale benefits and knowledge sharing between the markets which share similar structure and product offerings, Business Area East (Finland and Baltics) will become part of Business Area North (today Sweden and Norway).
