I joined Avanade March 2011 with a challenge presented to me; head Avanade’s collaboration business. It was my first step from being pure technical into a business role. Three years down the road and here we are.
In June I was asked to step into the Swedish leadership team as our Swedish Chief Technology and Innovation Officer – a role that started in Avanade with my old colleague Florin Rotar moving to Seattle stepping into the global CTIO role.
Satya Nadella had a profound quote in his first speech as CEO:
“Our industry does not respect tradition – it only respects innovation.”
With this in mind a role like this in a company like Avanade with it’s ties to Microsoft makes a lot of sense. I gladly accepted.
This of course changes things for me. This is a new journey. A journey I decided to share on the blog. The blog will re-focus on digital, bleeding edge technology and innovation. Less code, more ideas.
Looking forward to seeing you around.
