About me

I have extensive experience within the markets for energy production and water treatment for process industry, pharmaceutical industry and off-shore. I have worked with highly professional customers and partners in Europe, Japan and USA. I am strongly motivated from motivating others – to see things happen! From my educational background at the Technical University of Denmark and Copenhagen Business School I am challenged by complex issues and to give the customers, partners and owners a little more than they expect.

During my different employments I have compiled deep experience with direct customer contact and negotiations as well as key account management, business development, strategy, budgeting, organizational development and change management and with board work. I meet people with an open-minded approach, high level of integrity and empathy. People deals with people...
