370 MSEK to 2 450 MSEK, turnover doubled, and EBITDA increased from 50 MSEK to

job growing GHP Speciality Care the last nine years. His industry knowledge and
experience of both organic and international growth is very much aligned with
Carasent's ambitions going forward. We are confident that this change in
management will benefit our customers, employees, and investors", says Johan
Lindqvist, Chairman of the Board.
Öhman has been with GHP Speciality Care in various positions since 2006, and has
managed the company during heavy expansion, both financially and geographically.
He has experience from growing business in the UK, Czech Republic, the Middle
East, Denmark and Norway.
"I look forward to joining Carasent and become a part of this exciting company.
As a customer I know them well. Carasent is not the largest provider, but their
platform is the best. The challenge is now to grow, and to become number one.",
says Daniel Öhman.
The Board extends its gratitude to Dennis Höjer, who will continue as acting CEO
until Daniel Öhman assumes the position.
