NIJMEGEN, Netherlands, April 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — ScreenPoint Medical, today announced a significant transition in its leadership as Mark Koeniguer, the current CEO, steps down from his position. Mark served as CEO since 2022 and was instrumental in ScreenPoint’s commercial growth and success over the past 2 years.

The company’s Board of Directors has appointed Pieter Kroese as the new Chief Executive Officer effective April 25, 2024.

“I am thrilled to lead ScreenPoint into its next phase of growth and innovation,” said Mr. Kroese. “I am deeply committed to building upon the strong foundation we have and continuing to work closely with our talented team to drive continued success. We are already expanding screening capacity and capability through proven reader support – we look forward to increasing our ability to support providers and women moving forward.”

Sir Michael Brady, Chairman of the Board at ScreenPoint Medical and a co-founder of the company, expressed enthusiasm about Pieter’s appointment, stating, “Pieter’s remarkable leadership qualities, coupled with his depth of knowledge of our product and industry, make him the perfect choice to lead ScreenPoint into the future.

I am confident that his leadership will continue to deliver product excellence: earlier detection with outstanding reading workflow and improved patient outcomes. We continue to see these results from clinical sites all over the world, including many here in the United States. No other Breast AI solution has demonstrated the same results as Transpara, and I am confident that the team will continue to push on these frontiers under Pieter’s leadership.”
