Visionary, strategic and highly value driven executive with 20 years of experience leading company innovation and lately digital business creation. Passionate about getting teams to perform in times of massive transition, my eyes are set on strong collaboration across public and private partners. I am risk willing, always looking to out-innovate competitors. With a clear vision, agility, perseverance and a consistent track record of successful execution, I am an effective decisionmaker and influencer spanning complex stakeholder landscapes.
I specialize in porting diverse technical, commercial and design thinking competencies obtained from a broad spectrum of job experiences to deliver digital products and services aligned with the demands in the digital age. My mindset is highly entrepreneurial and growth oriented owing to my diplomatic assignment as CEO of Innovation Center Denmark in Silicon Valley, California (2010-2014).
I have built top management programs in Silicon Valley for Danish executives and I directed Denmark’s first tech incubator and accelerator outside of Denmark. We also facilitated academic exchange between Danish and US Universities along with promoting Denmark as a country for US investment. These initiatives together created a win-win situation for all stakeholder groups and fostered entrepreneurship, growth and foreign investments in Denmark.
My educational background includes a technical PhD, a degree in strategic communication and a series of executive training around exponential technology; 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics and beyond.
