Robert Kronqvist joins NDA Group as General Manager Nordics
We are happy to announce and welcome Robert Kronqvist to the NDA team as General Manager for our Nordic affiliate head-quartered in Stockholm, Sweden. Robert brings with him 20 years’ experience from working in the Nordic Life Science Sector.
Working in both large pharma and as the CEO of a smaller biotech has provided Robert with invaluable insights into the industry, allowing him to help NDA’s clients overcome the hurdles of developing and getting novel products to market.
“I am thrilled to join the NDA Group with its strong track record of delivering value to clients” says Robert. “The Nordic innovation and Life Science community is thriving, and I am looking forward not only to supporting our existing clients but also reaching out to new and emerging Biotech companies here in the Nordics and helping them to bring their innovative products to the market with minimal delay.”
As the new General Manager for the Nordics, Robert will be responsible for developing, managing and driving the NDA team and business in the region. With his network and skills NDA’s capabilities will become more available and easier to access to large and small companies alike, than ever before.
“I’m very excited to have Robert join our team” commented Johan Strömquist, CEO of NDA Group. “His sense of focus, pragmatism and long experience from industry will enable us to engage with our clients and their challenges in new and more flexible ways.”
Robert started his career in biochemistry research that he continued at AstraZeneca. There he rapidly took on increased responsibilities and became a trusted leader within CNS & Pain R&D. His main focus was pre-clinical activities and supporting his teams through times of change.
At the close of AstraZeneca’s site in Södertälje Robert stepped in as CEO for BioChromix, one of the companies supported by Karolinska Development.
Since then Robert has both helped the Swedish Police authority develop their processes and practices for DNA analysis for forensics purposes as the head of the biology section and six teams of over 100 staff, and most recently as Director Analytical Development & Head of Quality control at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
“Robert’s experience provides us with a great opportunity to expand our reach in the Nordic market and for more clients to discover the many services and options that we have to offer to accelerate their drug development activities” continues Johan Strömquist. “Robert’s background gives our clients the ideal counterpart in NDA, with a thorough understanding of the situation and challenges that they are going through.”
