CSAM is pleased to announce the appointment of Linus Fred to the position of Sales Manager for the Swedish market. In his new role, Linus will be responsible for growing sales, with a focus on developing the company’s sales strategy and infrastructure in that market.
“I am thrilled to welcome Linus to CSAM and look forward to working with him on developing our sales capabilities in Sweden,” said Rolf-Henry Grønlund, Group Sales Director. “Linus has a long and successful track record within the Swedish eHealth industry, and we are proud that he has chosen CSAM for this next chapter in his career.”
Sweden is the largest market in CSAM’s expanding portfolio of customers. Last year, the company strengthened its position in this market with the acquisition of Databyrån, the makers of ProSang, Scandinavia’s leading blood management system.
The addition of Linus to the team in Sweden will further increase CSAM’s capabilities in this key market and solidify the company’s position as the leading and fastest growing eHealth vendor in the Nordics.
“I am so pleased to be joining CSAM and look forward to working with the team to build on our already strong position in the Swedish market,” said Fred. “This is an exciting time to be in the eHealth industry, and the opportunity for CSAM is enormous.”
Linus began his career in eHealth more than 25 years ago at Profdoc AB, an electronic medical records (EMR) company in Uppsala, Sweden. Starting in 1993, he joined the company in a sales role, taking on increasingly senior positions, including Sales & Marketing Manager and Vice President. In 2008, Profdoc was acquired by CompuGroup Medical (CGM), and Linus was appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) where he served for seven years.
After two decades of career achievements and working intensely to build the eHealth business at Profdoc and CGM, Linus left the company on parental leave to raise his newborn son and spend more time with his family.
Over the past several years, Linus spent time working on various entrepreneurial pursuits, including a successful music distribution company and eHealth consulting business. His passion for building sales-driven organizations from the ground up is part of what drew him to CSAM.
“CSAM is a great company and I have been impressed with their growth over the past few years,” said Fred. “I am excited and energized to be part of this company during such a transformative time in the eHealth market.”
Linus is looking forward to applying his skills and experience in the eHealth industry to identify key sales opportunities for CSAM, build the organization’s sales capacity, and implement a sales strategy that will accelerate the company’s growth in the Swedish market.
“It’s incredible to be part of an organization where you feel like you can make a meaningful difference,” said Fred. “CSAM has a creative energy and happiness in the atmosphere that is infectious.”
Linus has a competitive spirit that drives him to be the best at whatever he does. He is known for his strong sales and marketing skills, and his passion for driving results.
“Improving and continuing to build on an already successful sales strategy is always a challenge, but it is one that I am excited to tackle head-on,” said Fred. “I know that together, we can achieve anything at CSAM!”
When he’s not working, Linus enjoys spending quality time with his family, listening to music and playing the guitar.
