Press Announcement: Fabio Fagagnini appointed CEO of Healthcare Holding Schweiz AG

The Swiss Fabio Fagagnini has been appointed CEO of Healthcare Holding Schweiz AG by the board of directors with immediate effect. The leading Swiss Medtech Services and Distribution Group was founded in 2021 as an acquisition holding and has so far acquired four medium-sized companies.


Zug, Schweiz – April 3rd, 2024


Upon completing their MBAs at INSEAD in Fontainebleau in 2014, the three fellow students Beat Brägger, Lukas Gayler, and Fabio Fagagnini jointly acquired Mikrona Technologie AG. By that time, they could not have known what a remarkable journey awaited them. After successfully steering the well-known Swiss manufacturer of orthodontic treatment units back on track, they went on to acquire the Swiss market leader in orthodontic consumables, Ortho-Walker AG, in 2019. Last year, under the leadership of Fabio Fagagnini, they successfully sold the resulting entity, Mikrona Group AG, to Healthcare Holding Schweiz AG.

Hardly 6 months later, the entrepreneur and seasoned manager from St. Gallen received an offer from the investors to lead the entire Healthcare Holding, taking the helm in guiding both the management team and the integration of the group. He will assume this position in addition to his role as the Managing Director of Mikrona Group, and work closely with the investors’ board of directors.

Fabio is the perfect candidate for us. He gained initial experience through his leadership and sale of the family business, Fagagnini AG. Later, at Mikrona and Ortho-Walker, he authored an impressive success story. Additionally, Fabio brings over 20 years of international experience in the medical technology industry and has a broad network within the Swiss healthcare sector. We are delighted that he will now lead Healthcare Holding and its ambitious acquisition and integration strategy,” stated Fabian Kröher, Chairman of the Board of Healthcare Holding and Partner at Winterberg Group.

The appointment comes at the right time – just recently, Healthcare Holding was able to attract additional investors and raise a double-digit million amount of capital to even accelerate its further growth.

I am very excited about the new challenge!” Fabio Fagagnini adds, “We have the unique opportunity to establish the undisputed Swiss market leader in distribution and services of medical technology, introducing new approaches and technologies for the entire industry. We will play a crucial role in continuously improving the supply of medical products in Switzerland, equipping Swiss hospitals, practices, and care facilities with leading and innovative products.

The holding is currently at the forefront of ongoing acquisition processes and expects to successfully conclude further acquisitions shortly.
