Passing the torch
After more than 5 years at e-conomic, the time has come to pass the torch: I’m happy to share that Mogens Elsberg will take over as CEO in e-conomic by the end of this month, continuing the journey to take e-conomic to the next level.
It’s been a great ride and I’m truly honored and proud of the achievements we’ve accomplished at e-conomic during my time. We’ve gone from 40 employees, 15,000 customers and €4m revenue in 2008 to more than 200 employees, 75,000 e-conomic customers (plus many more on Debitoor) and expected revenue of more than €20m in 2014.
I’m also very proud of the great and unique spirit that we have maintained in the company and the way we have been able to live out our company values of dedication, respect, transparency, ambition and, not least, having fun!
The journey has just begun
Despite what we’ve already accomplished, the journey of e-conomic has just begun. I’m very confident that Mogens – with his great experience with global technology expansion and software business leadership – is the right person to take e-conomic to the next level and carry out our ambitious growth and expansion plans.
Here are Mogens’ words on e-conomic and the goals of the company:
e-conomic is a phenomenal technology success story for Denmark. I am really looking forward to continuing the growth across Europe and globally. We are passionate about helping small businesses become more successful and want many more of them to benefit from collaborating with the online products and services that e-conomic and our wide array of partners provide.
My own journey with e-conomic will also continue as I will still be a shareholder in the company and will support Mogens on specific business initiatives along the way.
I’m also very much looking forward to starting in my new role as Special Operating Director for HgCapital – the owners of e-conomic who I’ve worked closely with over the past year – with the task of finding new investment opportunities among Scandinavian SaaS companies.
Thanks for your support
Since this will be my final post on this blog, I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in e-conomic during the past 5 years – customers, partners, employees and everyone else – for your support and dedication and for taking the journey with me.
