Salvia BioElectronics Appoints Former MedTech Investor Jeroen Siemes as Chief Financial Officer

EINDHOVEN, October 12, 2023 – Salvia BioElectronics has appointed Jeroen Siemes as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), adding a seasoned finance and investment expert to the team. Siemes, with a remarkable history in fundraising, financial strategy, and financial management within the MedTech sector, previously spent nearly a decade at BOM Brabant Ventures, where he specialized in catapulting MedTech startups to success.

Reflecting on their collaboration, which began in 2017, CEO Hubert Martens states, "Jeroen Siemes was one of the first to believe in our mission." In 2023, a significant milestone was achieved as Salvia’s groundbreaking paper-thin implant for people with migraine and cluster headache was administered to the first group of patients in Salvia's clinical trials in Belgium and Australia.

As the company finalizes its initial clinical trials, it is gearing up for a new financing round. In previous years, Salvia BioElectronics has already secured over €34 million in funding, and with Siemes now in the role of CFO, the company is well-prepared to secure follow-on investments. These funds will facilitate clinical trials, regulatory approval, and commercialization in Europe and the U.S. in the coming years.

Commenting on Siemes’ appointment, Martens says, "The arrival of Jeroen as CFO marks an exciting phase of expansion. With his extensive background in finance and investment, Jeroen is ideally suited for this crucial role."

Siemes is excited about this new challenge:

 "I look forward to playing my part in taking the company to new heights so that, as a team, we can bring hope and relief to people with migraine around the world."

Page Title (H1)

Header (H2)

A subheading or chapter heading (H3)

Introductory text or a first paragraph of information on this subject. Write as naturally as possible and be nice and specific. If necessary, use AI software to help you get started, but definitely don't use it one-on-one. Search engines can penalize AI content.

Subheading (H4)

Here too there is more than enough room for a good story, an interesting article or background information. If necessary, use a summary:

  • a summary is clear
  • one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  • also use search terms if necessary

Another topic (H3)

Another subheading (H4)

Do not use a Title Header (H1), but use an H2 Header instead. An H1 is actually a title of the page and may only appear once on a web page. The H2 is a kind of chapter and the other headers (H3 to H6) are subheadings and subheadings within the chapter. The order is important for the readability of visitors and search engines.

  1. a summary is clear
  2. one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  3. also use search terms if necessary

This way everything remains easy to read and understandable for the reader. People can also scroll directly to the topic they are interested in.

Paragraph heading style (H5)

This is another example of a heading. The headings H5 and H6 are usually used as paragraph headings, each with their own style.

Paragraph heading style (H6)

In the editor you can really see a difference in font size of all headers, but on the live website they have their own style.

Other options

Use a "quote". That looks like this:

This is a quote!

You can also put texts in bold, italic, etc.
Of maak een link naar een andere pagina of website.
And finally, you can also create Superscript(1) and Subscript(2) text.
