"Add value wherever I can, sometimes by listening and advising customers/colleagues and sometimes by creating a new service or improved way of working is my great passion of work"
After school my first job was at the accounting department of a shipping agency from Norway. Accounting is not my passion I discovered quickly so I decided to switch to the American credit information company D&B where I stayed for over 18 years. Credit risk, debt collection, outsourcing and the use of software and predictability models that’s what I liked most in my various roles within that company.
A switch to a Dutch company in more or less the same business, consumer checks, debt collection and purchasing debt portfolios I had several roles in sales and operations and I was finally part of the “get ready for sales” team .
After the buyout of the management, I decided to leave and joined a law firm.
At the law firm my role as a director was to develop the business to grow and after that I made a move to a bailiff firm as client relations director.
I learned a lot in those years and finally made the decision to join a software company, which was planning to sell the business in a few years’ time. Different ball game restructuring and redefining sales and subscription strategies and hand over to the new owners. After that I took a sabbatical to travel through Spain.
Joined Accountor, redefined sales and together with my marketing colleague we implemented a new sales strategy to be able to grow. And here I am today.
