I am pleased to announce the appointment of two new Board Members who are highly experienced industry executives.

Lars studied International Business Economics at Aalborg University and proceeded to work in the refurbished IT industry in Denmark. Since that time Lars has built his skills and experiences with major roles with Denmark based IT companies. At Nordic Computer he has the P&L responsibility while focusing on building the service and hardware capabilities that have always been at the core of the company. In his spare time, Lars enjoys skiing, cooking and traveling with his family.
