EVP and CTIO, Tele2
Through 15 years in senior roles incl, CEO, COO, and Group CTO at major multinationals, I remain convinced about how people, innovation and technology can make a sustainable and positive impact. My focus and passion continue to be on building and coaching outstanding teams that are hungry, humble, and hardworking, and have the ability to over-deliver on strategic objectives. I am a firm believer that digital transformation requires a customer centric, data driven and “clean-sheet” thinking in order to deliver tangible results.
Together with key partners at VEON, we have delivered Industry First vision by pioneering a full digital stack implementation covering more than 100Mn customers, and helped to significantly improve our relative market position and increase customer satisfaction by c.a.20%. Furthermore, we have also delivered the first Cloud ERP for a Telco in the Eurasia region, and completely modernized all of the networks in the countries. We took a leap forward and embraced new technologies and suppliers providing much lower structural costs while keeping the investments at the industry average level.
Next to technology my passion is in macrobiotic cooking as a catalyst for a beautiful and sustainable environment. And most importantly, I thoroughly enjoy building a tightly knit collaborative network of local leaders and am proud to have developed a new generation of tech-savvy talent.
