Nexstim, the Finnish specialist in navigated brain stimulation, has appointed Mikko Karvinen as chief financial officer, effective 18 August. This is Mr Karvinen’s first foray in the healthcare sector: he was previously CFO at Nordic IT solution provider Innofactor and before that, at SSH Communications Security. His role at Nexstim was formerly held by Janne Huhtala, who was promoted to the role of CEO in January 2013. Privately-held Nexstim is backed by Capricorn Health-tech Fund; Finnish Industry Investment; HealthCap; Ilmarinen; Life Sciences Partners; Lundbeckfond Ventures; and SITRA. The company’s NBT system is CE-marked and US FDA-cleared for brain mapping prior to neurosurgery and is currently being trialled for stroke therapy.
