Polygiene, the world-leading provider of odour control technology and Stays Fresh solutions for clothing, sports equipment, lifestyle, textiles, and other materials, has appointed Lars Bjork and Philipp Burgtorf to its Advisory Board. The new appointments will enhance the range and depth of expertise and experience available to the management team.

The advices concern strategic planning, broadening the network of the company, and to obtain feedback from independent parties. The company’s Advisory Board is not connected to the Board and has no formal powers. Polygiene’s CEO sets the agenda for the cooperation and follows up with each individual.

Polygiene CEO Ulrika Björk said, “I am proud to welcome these two highly knowledgeable individuals to our Advisory Board. Björk brings with him a wealth of experience in dealing with the many challenges of a fast-growing company, while Burgtorf has expertise in building ingredient brands and a keen understanding of the European home textiles industry. Their collective knowledge and skills will prove invaluable for Polygiene on our journey ahead. We look forward to sharing fresh perspectives, strategic thinking and industry insights.”

Lars Björk lead Qlik as CEO and was a member of the company’s board of directors. Under Björk’s leadership, Qlik sustained tremendous growth while considerably expanding its geographic reach. He is now pursuing a career as advisor, board member, and investor to start ups in the tech space.

Philipp Burgtorf is Board Member of Bettzeit Group, Europe’s top three direct-to-consumer mattress company. Burgtorf was general manager consumer fabrics Europe at W.L.Gore. Before joining Gore, he was general manager Central Europe at Nike where he increased sales and margins by double digits through better harmonising marketing planning and retail customer-related product initiatives. Most recently he was group general manager bedding at Recticel, Europe’s top three supplier of sleep products. By improving the brand positioning of, for example, Schlaraffia and the ingredient brand Geltex inside Burgtorf contributed to the sustainable performance improvement of Recticel’s bedding division.
