The first local managing director for Shimadzu Denmark, Joachim Holm, has been appointed.
Joachim Holm is the first local managing director of the Shimadzu office in Denmark. On 1 April, he took over the reins at the office established 18 months ago in Ballerup on the outskirts of Copenhagen, which was previously managed centrally by the management of Shimadzu Europe and locally by Morten Thorslund, sales and service manager.
Joachim Holm is an experienced senior sales leader specialising in pharma, life science and medical products. Holm studied pharmacy and business management in Copenhagen and has held several management positions at notable medical technology and pharma companies in recent years, including ChemoMetec and Specific Pharma. Thanks to his role as manager with responsibility for the Nordic countries—at Medtronic, among other places—he is familiar with the entire Scandinavian market. The 43-year-old lives with his family in the Copenhagen metropolitan area.
