Breast AI company ScreenPoint Medical has appointed Pieter Kroese as their new Chief Executive Officer, the company announced Friday in a communiqué.

Kroese takes the role after serving as COO of ScreenPoint for over five years, in which he has managed the transition of the company from an early startup to an enterprise with hundreds of customers using ScreenPoint’s flagship Transpara® software to support millions of scans.

“I am thrilled to lead ScreenPoint into its next phase of growth and innovation,” Kroese said. “I am deeply committed to building upon the strong foundation we have and continuing to work closely with our talented team to drive continued success. We are already expanding screening capacity and capability through proven reader support – we look forward to increasing our ability to support providers and women moving forward.”

Sir Michael Brady, Chairman of the Board at ScreenPoint Medical and a co-founder of the company, said: “Pieter’s remarkable leadership qualities, coupled with his depth of knowledge of our product and industry, make him the perfect choice to lead ScreenPoint into the future. His strategic mindset and commitment to excellence align perfectly with our company mission of early breast cancer detection. Pieter has been an integral part of our growth to date and will provide seamless leadership through this transition into our next chapter for our customers, partners, and team.’’

Transpara® user and ScreenPoint Board Member Dr. Rachel Brem, author of over a hundred peer-reviewed publications on breast imaging, said: “Pieter has been an integral part of the ScreenPoint team for years. I am confident that his leadership will continue to deliver product excellence: earlier detection with outstanding reading workflow and improved patient outcomes. We continue to see these results from clinical sites all over the world, including many here in the United States. No other Breast AI solution has demonstrated the same results as Transpara, and I am confident that the team will continue to push on these frontiers under Pieter’s leadership.” 

The entire team at ScreenPoint extended its gratitude to Mark Koeniguer, now former CEO who served in the role for the past two year in which he helped develop the company’s commercial growth and success.
