Maria Hjorth is proposed to join the board of Monsenso as chairman

Monsenso today announces that the board of Directors proposes Maria Hjorth to be elected for the board at the General Assembly on April 14th, 2021.

Monsenso – a leading provider of digital health solutions for mental health – plans to further strengthen the board by nominating a new professional board member with strong qualifications and competencies to support the company’s growth journey: Maria Hjorth, CEO at VP Securities A/S

Maria Hjorth will replace Jukka Pertola, who – as previously announced – will withdraw from the board of directors in order to comply with good board governance practices by reducing his number of board positions.

The board and the management of Monsenso would like to thank Jukka Pertola for his efforts in supporting the management, the company in general and particularly the listing on Nasdaq First North in 2020.

The new board plans to constitute itself with Maria Hjorth as the Chairman and Jakob Bardram as the Vice Chairman following the ordinary Annual General Meeting on April 14, 2021, where Jukka Pertola is expected to resign as the Chairman.

The nomination of Maria Hjorth follows a change in the board in January, where Peter Høngaard Andensen and Jacob Hahn Michelsen were elected with the aim to strengthen the competences and diversity of the board.

Jukka Pertola commented: ”It is sad to pass on the chairmanship, but I have to do so to comply with demands related to good corporate governance. On the other hand, I am very pleased that with Maria Hjorth and the changes made in January, we have a competent and experienced board that is well positioned to help Monsenso reach the next level. Jacob Hahn Michelsen and Peter Høngaard Andersen brought extensive experience in pharma- and health-related software, medical applications, science and research, pharmaceuticals, neurology, innovation and funding. Maria Hjorth’s experiences from top management, financial businesses, investor relations and M&A is a great supplement to the rest of the board”.
