Rolf Soderstrom has over 30 years’ experience in finance and a track record of  accelerating the profitable growth of companies and delivering shareholder returns. Rolf has extensive strategic, operational and international experience including M&A, fundraisings and disposals.

During his time as CFO of BTG plc from 2008 to 2018, Rolf helped drive the successful transformation of the company into a fully integrated global manufacturing and sales organisation focused on specialist healthcare.
