Jonsson will remain in office until he leaves Enlabs in October 2020, with the process of appointing a replacement having subsequently begun.
“Adam has played an important role within Enlabs and has contributed a lot to our development. I will miss our close cooperation and wish Adam all the best in his further career,” commented Enlabs CEO George Ustinov.
