We are kicking off 2017 with some exciting news, which I want to share with you.
Almost 200 new members joined J. Boye in 2016. Great news as every new member makes the J. Boye community a more valuable resource for everyone involved.
Besides continuing to grow, our ambition is to continually improve the experience of being a member; to make the J. Boye community a useful and trusted resource in the working lives of our members. To make a difference to you as a member, by providing you with unparalleled access to insights in a rapidly changing world.
What I founded back in 2003 has now become a truly international community of highly talented professionals. Together with Lau Andreasen who joined back in 2008, and the rest of the team, we’ve tirelessly travelled around Europe and North America, meeting, connecting and challenging digital leaders while turning it into an exciting business.
During 2016 we realised that to take J. Boye to the next level and to continue to deliver we both needed to be able to dedicate more time and energy to where it all started: Meeting with you as members, moderating group meetings and events, being a part of industry conversations, writing and sharing continuously.
To make this happen, we turned a new page in December and welcomed Claus Olsen as our new Managing Director. Claus joins us in Copenhagen and brings with him vast management experience to take our organisation to the next level. We first met while contracting at Danish shipping conglomerate Maersk back in 2003 and we’ve stayed in touch ever since. He will focus on making J. Boye an even better place to work and also on streamlining operations.
It is a big decision to bring onboard new leadership in any people business, and I’m excited to have Claus join the team.
I believe that we have never been better positioned to realise our original vision of an inclusive knowledge network for those taking charge of transforming tomorrow’s businesses’.
Finally, I want to thank YOU for your continued support and contributions to the community. Stay involved. Sharing is caring!
All the best for 2017
