My Story

I have a +30 years of experience in sales and business development, of which more than 20 years in the ICT industry. I did my first sales trip to France when I was 25 years old, selling transport and forwarding services to French customers. Since then, I have worked in various sales roles, for example as a Country Manager for several international technology companies. I have built sales and partner channels and the past 10 years I have been involved with growth and sales strategies and processes and increasingly focused in helping companies to start or accelerate their expansion.

My present roles are now wider and include lots of activities which are not directly sales focused, such as strategy consulation. However I believe that sales and deal closing needs to be in the heart of every growth company. I serve now in few boards and have also invested into these companies. Having your own ”skin in the game” helps you stay focused and responsible for your advice and actions.
