About us

PharmaLex Sweden was founded as Nordic Health Economics AB in 2003 by Ingela Björholt, who has a doctoral degree within health economics. Her previous career in senior positions within marketing & sales in the pharmaceutical industry provides extensive insight and contacts in the business area.

Since the foundation, the company has attracted a growing group of dedicated professionals with backgrounds in the pharmaceutical industry, the pharmacy profession and academic research institutes. Strong emphasis is placed upon professional excellence, and every senior member of the staff holds a doctoral degree in pharmacology, epidemiology or medicine.

Native speakers of the different languages in the Nordic region belong to the staff, emphasising the company’s ability to provide services and support of customer activities in all Nordic markets.
