Mr. Elsaesser’s appointment follows the completion of two of the largest and longest followed up clinical trials ever conducted in tinnitus, including 517 participants. Mr. Elsaesser will be responsible for advancing the commercialization of the Neuromod’s breakthrough tinnitus treatment product – Lenire™.

The Company is working towards the European commercialization of Lenire®; scaling up manufacturing capacity to meet anticipated European demand, and progressing US regulatory strategy to secure market entry into the United States. Mr. Elsaesser will play a key role in these developments.

Welcoming the appointment, Dr. Ross O’Neill, CEO of Neuromod said: “I am delighted to announce that Florian Elsaesser will be joining the Neuromod team as Chief Commercial Officer. Attracting a leading hearing aid industry expert with extensive experience across the sector is an exciting development and recognition of the immense potential of our technology. It is a pivotal time for the Company as we progress with the European commercialization of Lenire™. Florian’s experience will be crucial as we work towards delivering our much-anticipated breakthrough treatment to people currently living with tinnitus.”

Mr. Elsaesser added: “With Lenire™ Neuromod has developed a fantastic treatment option for the millions of tinnitus sufferers globally whose clinical needs remain underserved. Lenire™ has achieved compelling results in multiple large-scale clinical trials. Personally, I am excited about the high overlap between tinnitus and hearing impairment. For a huge number of patients, tinnitus is often a leading indicator of hearing loss. These patients tend to seek treatment for tinnitus much earlier than for hearing loss. Therefore I see huge opportunities for Lenire™ to boost the hearing aid retail market.”
