What excites you about Deallus?
What excites me the most is definitely the people. I think we have been able to attract some really fantastic people who are both curious and smart, but who still love to have fun. What I like about Deallus as a company is that we’ve managed to stay at the forefront of how CI is evolving; we are the ones driving the discussion around being more strategic, how to deal with the broader dynamics of the competitive environment etc.
I also think that we are clearly setting the pace for the industry, so to speak, in terms of what can you expect from a premium service provider. The third thing that excites me is our global reach – we’ve created a diverse team both in terms of culture and experience, which means we get a rich mix of perspectives and insights in one place. I’ve personally benefitted from this and I think a lot of our clients have as well.
Background and experience
Life outside of work
Family is hugely important to me. I often make the joke that I have my Deallus family and my family-family, actually! Outside of that, I enjoy staying fit and being in nature, whether we’re skiing (with my actual family) in winter or taking our boat out to go swimming and fishing in the summer in the archipelago.
