About me

I am a family father who values the time spent with my wife and my two daughters. I like skiing in the mountains during winter time and in summer I like to be on my SUP on Lake Zurich or enjoy travelling to new places.

I have lived half my life in Denmark and the other half in Switzerland - except for all the years travelling to or with clients all over the world.

Broad experience

My career has been centered around consulting, sales, leadership and coaching. I am a big believer in passion, motivational leadership and out-of-the-box-thinking.

My experience ranges from individual start-up product sales to large scale strategic sales with massive teams closing billion-$ deals. I have done individual sales, led smaller sales teams and been leading 3 level sales organisations with hundreds of sales executives and account manager.

I have worked extensively with start-ups, large multinationals and done some volunteering work.
