2017-08-16

Min Doktor continues on its path to growth, one of the key initiatives being international expansion, thereby providing further European countries with high quality digital healthcare. In connection with this, Laurens Leurink will take office as new CEO on September 11.

Lars Jörnow, Chairman of Min Doktor and founding partner at EQT Ventures, explains why Laurens Leurink is the ideal leader to take Min Doktor from a Swedish digital healthcare start-up to a leading European healthcare provider:

“The recruitment of Laurens Leurink is an important step towards developing Min Doktor into Europe’s leading digital primary healthcare company. He is the kind of leader that attracts and develops the best talent while providing a strong vision for the company’s future as the provider of the highest quality primary care to patients anywhere and anytime. Laurens’ experience from growth creation in businesses with a high level of focus on security and user-friendly applications was an important consideration in appointing him as Min Doktor’s new CEO.”

Laurens Leurink most recently comes from the position of Senior Vice President of Amadeus IT Group, a company providing digital booking systems to the global travel market. Prior to that, he held several leading positions within digital travel company Expedia, as well as Booking.com, where he as COO headed the company's international expansion outside of Europe. Mr Leurink also founded the online health insurance company Ditzo which had a successful introduction in the Netherlands.

-— “Sweden as a country is at the very forefront of digitalisation. There is a considerable untapped potential to make the healthcare industry more efficient and effective through new technology and improved processes. Over the last couple of years, both private and public players have taken steps towards that end, with Min Doktor in the driver's seat. The next step is to capitalize on these experiences, further cementing our market leadership position in Sweden, and within short offer the best and most secure digital healthcare to other European markets as well,” says Laurens Leurink, new CEO at Min Doktor.
