The merger and the new organization aim to create a basis for growth. Brian Sørensen, Executive Vice President, IT Relation states: “Our ambition is to be perceived as an agile and professional partner being very close to and understanding our customers’ businesses. Today, we can announce a scalable and skilled organization, being able to fulfill customer needs now as well as in the future. In addition, we present significant strength and size, which only few businesses in this industry are able to match. All together this provides us with unique possibilities for growth and positioning as a preferred partner within digital transformation among potential and existing customers.”
Related to the organizational adjustments Brian Sørensen explains: “When merging two companies, there will be dual job functions as well as other consequences, when matching competences and positions in the most optimal way. Across the two original companies, unfortunately, we have to part ways with 25 good employees, who will not be part of the final team. Each and every one of them are competent colleagues, and we will of course do our utmost to help them move on with a new career.”
