I am very much looking forward to welcoming her to the company,” says Per Andersson, CEO of Xspray Pharma.
With lengthy Swedish and international experience in drug marketing and sales, Anna-Karin comes most recently from her position as Global Marketing Director at Oncopeptides AB.

Anna-Karin will take office on March 15, 2022 and will become part of Xspray Pharma’s management group.
