I joined Tele2 IoT as Chief Commercial Officer in 2018, and earlier this year was named Managing Director. During the past 2 years we have initiated a transformation from a start-up focused purely on revenue growth, to a scale-up focused on profitable growth and operational excellence, which simply means we now have strong processes in place, excellent customer service, and we generate profit.
During 2020 the world has changed a great deal. We have been facing a global pandemic, and this has impacted our working lives and our businesses in many ways. However, I am both humbled and pleased to say that our business has not been impacted by this crisis because the customers that are growing faster during the crisis are compensating for the ones facing struggles. And like many others in our industry, we are doing our best to help those customers who are struggling.
This year also sees us concluding the legal entity of Tele2 IoT to become a Business Unit reporting to the B2B Division of Tele2 Sweden operating company. While this move puts the full weight and power of Tele2 behind us it is still business as usual for Tele2 IoT. We retain our autonomy as a Business Unit, meaning we continue being responsible for product design, operations, sales, and customer services – and we will continue to invest in our international business, while also accelerating synergies with Tele2 B2B in Sweden and the Nordics.
