My driving force: I find it very rewarding and inspiring to work with start-ups and scale-ups, and thereby contribute to their purpose. I provide inspiration and advice, challenge strategies and plans, and participate hands-on in the work if relevant. How I work: I no longer work in a full-time role – I devote my time to investments and work for start-ups and scale-ups. I work on a part time basis, in the form of board work, consultancy/advisory, or short-term assignments I do try to make money as an investor, but I am not driven by fiscal renumeration when I work with start-ups and scale-ups – my contribution to the development of the business is on pro bono basis as a starting point. Depending on the amount of time we jointly agree that I spend, a fair fiscal renumeration in some form could become relevant (eg. fee or equity). My background and results: I am 55 years old, BSc Mechanical Engineering as well as commercial degrees, and I spent my 30+ year career in Global Tech companies like Nokia, Heidelberger Druck, Siemens, Hasselblad, Jabra, and Brüel & Kjaer. Most of the time (25 years) with P&L responsibility in international and global leadership roles in After Sales. I have vast experience in scaling product- and service-related businesses, stakeholder management, leadership, and market analysis. I more than once headed up implementation of a globally aligned go-to-market strategy in a formerly regionally focused business set-up. I also headed the development and global implementation of new service contract concepts on several occasions. How I contribute: Very Customer centric approach to business. Customer first! Strive to find simplicity in the complexity. Strong strategic mind and vast experience in scaling. Confidence inspiring personality. Very good communicator on all levels. I say what I do and do what I say. My values: Customer first! Walk the talk: Do what you say and say what you do! Team before individuals. Be honest – also when it hurts.
