Uppsala, 1 April 2022. The diagnostics company Gradientech announces today that Urban Adolfsson is taking up the position as the company's new CFO. Urban has solid experience from leading positions in financial management and business development and was most recently CFO and interim CEO at Encare, a Swedish software company within healthcare.

“Urban is joining Gradientech during an exciting time for the company. We are currently conducting the clinical study to enable market launch of our first product QuickMIC® for diagnostic use for increased sepsis care, first in Europe and then in the US. Urban’s expertise in business development and broad experience in finance will be important for our continued success,” says Sara Thorslund, CEO of Gradientech.

Urban has a broad background in finance in various roles and organisations, including accounting, financial and business analysis, cash flow and investment planning as well as equity raising.

“I look forward to work with the entire Gradientech team and together create the best possible conditions for a successful international launch of the company’s important diagnostic product, at times of increasing antibiotic resistance but also increased attention on precision medicine,” says Urban Adolfsson, new CFO at Gradientech.

Urban succeeds former interim CFO Hans Richter.

“I would like to thank Hans who has been a very valuable resource for several years for both Gradientech and me personally. Among other things, Hans has played a key role in the work of building and implementing processes that make Gradientech ready for a future IPO. I wish Hans all the best in his future assignments,” concludes Sara Thorslund.
