03 Experience

1987

FLY BABY, FLY

Leaving home

Was undoubtly the best decision of my life. I was over-ripe and ready to go out into the world and do things, so at the age of 17 i moved 1000km to study Data Communications. In Arboga Sweden of all places..

1993-1995

UNGERMANN-BASS

Network Design Engineer.

This was the first job i had where i got seriously involved in the development of the Internet. The web was still illusive and global interconnetivity of networks in its infancy. I quickly got interested in high speed networks and the complexity of ATM. When Cisco Systems aquired ATM Switch vendor LightStream from UB, Roland Acra called to ask if i wanted to come aboard with Cisco. Couldn´t say no to that.

2000-2002

34 NETWORKS, ANZUR

Co-founder

After Cisco i struggled to find purpose and i co-founded two companies in the period. 34 NETWORKS did consulting in the Fiber Development space and ANZUR delivered primarily Software services for the financial community. This was my first real experience with what it ment to be a entrepreneur. Note to self: Remember that we developed the first ever Internet Bank for Nordea.

1969

POP!

Born a child of the cold war and a father working for the airforce we moved around and i became a gypsy and global citizen at heart.

1988 - 1993

FMV, OWELL

Project EngineeR, Project Manager FMV

Pre-sales engineer OWELL

 
I was recruited straight from High School to work for the Swedish Defense Material Administration on development of networked computer systems for the Swedish Army. I stayed there for a year before i was recruited to a PC and Network O/S reseller. The future as i would see it for the next 15 years had started.

1995 - 2000

CISCO SYSTEMS

Sr. Consulting Engineer EMEA, SE Manager Norway 

The years with Cisco was by far the most formative years in my life. Here i learned about great HR, about high tech innovation, how to lead the market and not follow, how to be a thought leader. How not to ask the clients for what technology they wanted but to understand their real needs. I learned that size is not a benefit in a rapidly changing market. I learned about great leadership and tough management. What it takes to succeed with acquisitions, about frugality, and most importantly i got to know some of the most fantastic people on the planet.

2002 - 2007

PACKETFRONT SWEDEN

VP Business Development, VP Sales, VP Marketing

After working as a consultant for 2 years i was eager to get back to the SW and HW part of the Internet and when Martin Thunman called to ask if i was interested in joining startup PacketFront the answer again was easy. The objective: develop leading edge SW and HW solutions for the rapidly growing Fiber access market. The goal (FCACTW) was printed on all circuitboards we produced. Greatest achievement was the development of the Open Access business model and a global marketshare of 40% in competition with Cisco Systems. Biggest lesson learned: The team is EVERYTHING!

EXPERIENCEO
I DARE YOU

Call me, mail me, skype me, poke me. Let´s get together and talk. Maybe you and i will find reason to work together, to network, to have fun. Maybe we will create a better future together. Maybe we just have a coffee together and keep living our separate lives. 

How will we know if we don´t try?
