Mads Vittrup will be joining the IAMERS Board of Directors as the International Chairman.
Mads Vittrup is a medical imaging equipment remarketing veteran and has been in the industry for 15 years. It is safe to say he is a pioneer in Europe and now Africa. He has an unmatched network and understanding of the international market of pre-owned diagnostic equipment. Years of extensive business travel and a background in development economics is the basis for his business success – of course, combined with a bit of golf.
Mads worked for Agito for many years but he left to start his own company together with Hassan El Azzazi, who unfortunately passed away recently.
Mads is a gentleman and is always ready to help you any way he can. If you email him or put in a call you can count on a quick reply.
As the CEO of the Denmark-based FlexRay Medical, Mads moves around the world a lot. You never know where he will be when he answers you so he is the perfect International Chairman.
I commented recently that IAMERS is growing in Europe. I see Europe as an expanding market serving the growing market in Africa.
Growth in the U.S. market helped foster growth in Europe. I wonder if U.S. suppliers will follow European vendors into Africa???
Congratulations Mads and IAMERS!
