Nanostart subsidiary MagForce Nanotechnologies AG Hires Key Members of Sales and Marketing Team

Berlin / Frankfurt Germany | Posted on March 10th, 2011

Nanostart subsidiary MagForce Nanotechnologies AG (FSE:MF6), a leader in nanomedicine-based cancer treatment, announced today that its sales and marketing team for Germany is in place and commercialization activities are set to begin. With a Commercial Director and four key account managers in place, MagForce will now seek to make its NanoTherm therapy available in clinics across Germany. The company has received EU approval for its medical devices, which use magnetic nanoparticles for the treatment of brain tumors. Through the application of an alternating magnetic field, the nanoparticles are activated, and heat is produced from within the tumor.Solveig Salomon joins the company as European Commercial Director and will lead the commercialization team. She has over twenty years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including sales and marketing experience in the area of oncology. Her professional experience includes leading positions held at Sandoz International GmbH, Amgen GmbH, Janssen-Cilag GmbH, and Grünenthal GmbH.

The start of commercialization is a significant milestone and represents a further success in transforming MagForce from a research-led enterprise to a commercially operating company," said Dr. Peter Heinrich, CEO of MagForce. "Launching a new technology requires experienced individuals with a proven track record and an enthusiasm for innovation. NanoTherm therapy offers an additional treatment option for patients suffering from malignant brain cancer, and I am confident that our team has the commitment and expertise to successfully bring this novel therapy to the European market. Perspective patients are currently being evaluated, and we expect the first patient to begin treatment in the coming weeks."

Christina-Beata Baumgarten, who will be responsible for Northeast Germany, joins MagForce with twelve years of medical device sales experience in the area of interdisciplinary endoscopic ultrasound systems, including positions at Toshiba Medical Systems GmbH Germany, Fujion Europe GmbH, and Philips Healthcare.
