The board of directors of Liva Healthcare has today appointed André Sode as new CEO of the company. André Sode has previously been the CFO and deputy CEO of the company for the past three years.
His appointment follows a wish from Liva’s Co-founder and previous CEO, Kristoffer From, to take leave for a longer period for private reasons. It is his intention to return to the company in another capacity once his leave comes to an end.
– I’m looking forward to continuing Liva Healthcare’s growth trajectory internationally and to strengthen the company’s position as leading European player within scalable and effective digital health coaching, said André Sode.
André Sode has a proven track record in executive positions with Saxo Bank and Telia prior to joining Liva Healthcare in 2016.
