New role, new focus – CTIO Patrik Löwendahl

Fotolia_71219196_Subscription_Monthly_M 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.

If you want to join me on this journey you can subscribe to the RSS feed, join me on Twitter or add me on LinkedIn.

Looking forward to seeing you around.
