He has previously held executive positions at Johnson and Johnson in a variety of operations, marketing, and management roles, including President of Johnson & Johnson Health Management.

“We are delighted to have Mr. Soderberg join ABM as chairman of our board of directors,” Vinay Joshi, CEO of ABM Respiratory Care, commented, “His appointment comes at a great time for the company since we recently completed our Series A funding of US$10.3 million, secured a significant order for our Alpha ventilator, and received 510(k) clearance by the US FDA for our BiWaze™ Airway Clearance System earlier this year.
