MetrioPharm Investor Relations News QIII 2021
Greetings from CEO Thomas Christély
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the new CEO of MetrioPharm AG. In this role, I will focus primarily on business development and financing. Dr. Wolfgang Brysch will continue to lead the scientific strategy and medical development of MP1032 as Chief Scientific Officer.
Over the past few weeks, I have had several opportunities to meet with Dr. Brysch and other members of the team. Their passion and expertise were important reasons for me to take on this position. Just as important for this step was the great potential of the further development and commercialization of MP1032. This became clear during several discussions about the results achieved so far and the future strategy. I look forward to the tasks ahead which I will take on in cooperation with Dr. Brysch and the entire team.
Furthermore, I am keen to get in touch with you, dear shareholders, and to meet you personally. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you informed on a regular basis via our established channels about any changes, innovations and successes.
