AMSTERDAM – Royal Philips has appointed Julia Strandberg as chief business leader of its Connected Care businesses, including sleep and respiratory care, effective April 24, 2023. 

Strandberg, who was most recently chief commercial officer for Pear Therapeutics, will also become a member of the company’s Executive Committee, reporting to CEO Roy Jakobs. 

“Julia brings deep, multi-disciplinary expertise, including in informatics and monitoring, to Philips,” Jakobs said. “Passionate about improving the health care experience for patients and providers across care settings, Julia understands how to deliver in the global health care ecosystem and adds extensive experience in developing and commercializing medical technologies.” 

Strandberg succeeds Dan Leonard, who took the role of chief business leader of Connected Care on an interim basis when Jakobs became CEO in October 2022. 

At Pear Therapeutics, Strandberg lead the commercial team that built, launched and grew the company’s prescription digital therapeutics offering. Previously, she led a health care business consulting firm focused on client growth; led the global health informatics and monitoring business at Medtronics; and led marketing for the patient monitoring business within Covidien’s respiratory and monitoring group, which was acquired by Medtronics. As of April 1, the Connected Care businesses will comprise the monitoring, sleep and respiratory care, and enterprise informatics businesses.
