Cynthia Schwalm transitions to Senior Advisor Business Development US, from her role as member of the Board of Directors

Helsinki, Finland As a consequence of the increasingly strong trend among large US institutional investors to demand that board members hold no more than four board positions in publicly listed companies, Cynthia Schwalm has today resigned from Nanoform’s board of directors. Cynthia will continue as a senior advisor to the CEO Edward Hæggström, with focus on US Business Development.

Cynthia Schwalm: “It’s been rewarding to serve on the Board of Nanoform. This move was necessitated by the strong trend in the US to have board members sit on fewer than five public company boards. Whilst Nanoform is a hugely exciting company with great potential for the future of healthcare this was the latest and fifth public company board I joined, therefore it is only fair to step down from the board of directors. In my new role as senior advisor to Nanoform, I’m delighted to be able to continue to support as needed and focus on business development and operational aspects. I look forward to be part of Nanoform’s exciting journey and to bring my years of experience and insights to help drive its proposition of “small is powerful” to patients in need, particularly in the United States.”

Edward Hæggström: “I very much look forward to continue to work with Cynthia in her new role as senior advisor to the CEO. Her clarity of thought and vast experience from the global pharma industry has been evident in her excellent board work at Nanoform.”
