“Sven has an impressive track record of creating value and as a deal maker. He brings a wealth of experience in leading successful biotechnology companies and bringing innovative new medicines all the way through development to product launch,” said Michael Oredsson, Chairman of Immunicum’s Board of Directors. “I am confident that Immunicum will benefit from his vast knowledge of the global biopharmaceutical industry, his strong network and his demonstrated transformative management expertise.

Dr. Rohmann brings more than three decades of experience as a successful executive in the industry, most recently as acting CEO for Oasmia Pharmaceuticals, a Swedish publicly-listed, commercial-stage oncology company. At Oasmia Pharmaceuticals he successfully raised SEK400 million to launch Apealea®, leading to its subsequent out-licensing for up to $678 million. Earlier in his career, Dr. Rohmann was the founding CEO at Ganymed Pharmaceuticals, where he advanced its lead program from discovery towards clinical Phase II, leading to the acquisition by Astellas. He also held the CEO position at BioVision where he successfully transformed its business resulting in its acquisition by Digilab Inc. Dr. Rohman has extensive big pharma experience from his senior managerial positions at Novartis and Merck KGaA. During his 10-year tenure at Merck KGaA, he built an oncology-focused product portfolio that included the launch of Erbitux®, generating over $2 billion in revenues.
Dr. Rohmann received his medical degree from the University of Mainz, Germany; his Ph.D. in medicine from the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; and an Executive MBA from the Kellogg School of Management in the USA.
