In May 2019, Lars Marcher was fired from Ambu after 10 years of leading the Danish medtech company. Now, he will be an advisor and consultant for Japanese Olympus, which recently entered the market for single-use endoscopes, which is Ambu's primary business area, according to a post on his Linkedin profile.

"It's a pleasure to work with the talented Olympus executive management team with the task to develop the strategic direction for Olympus Corporation for the next 10 years and to assist in sustaining their market leader position in global healthcare," he wrote late on Tuesday evening.
