Well growing up with computers, like my first ZX Spectrum+, got me hooked on technology.
In the eighties (when I was a kid) it was mostly playing games (remember Jetpack?) and printing labels, like “This belongs to”..
In the early nineties I used computers for setting up documents, posters etc. and fooling around with BBS – Wauw is was amazing to log on through a modem (300 baud in the beginning) to a system with other users/members to exchange files/messages etc.. In the mid-nineties I got access to the Internet and my first learn HTML book, soon after I had created homepage for my neighbors company, it was with frames and some nice roll-over buttons navigation :-)
My study direction was also aimed at New Media, learning how to create interactive CD-roms with Macromedia Director together with designing and coding websites.. And yes my neighbors company also got a nice CD-rom presentation with a memory game, with pictures of their vehicles ;-)
In the early 2007 we were 6 people and had made solutions for +200 customers with our own developed CMS, Browser Opdatering (in english Browser Updating) – we decided to sell the company to a close business partner, Visma Software, where we had created a webshop add-on to our CMS, which was closely integrated with their ERP system. In Visma Software I was Senior Manager and later International Product Manager for web and eCommerce products.
It was cool to be a part of a large company like Visma, with a lot of cool products, employees, partners and customers – but I wanted to try to work with an upper-scale CMS with large customers, where CMS was not just a tool for creating content – it was an important business tool with possibilities for optimizing sales and marketing. So in mid 2008 I decided to join Sitecore, working as a Sales Manager in Denmark.
In this blog I will write about subjects like online marketing, digital strategy, cool add-ons to Sitecore and whatever rumbles in my head.
