'We invested in SalesScreen at my former workplace. I loved it from the start. I also got to know some of the people at SalesScreen and I realized that they weren’t just easy going, they were also very dedicated and loved what they did–so when the opportunity presented itself, I took it.'
Stockholm, Sweden — Johan brings his sales expertise, tenacity and big personality to the SalesScreen team.
Dave: What is your work education/work background?
Johan: I have a business degree in Finance with focus on IT. I've pretty much always been in Sales, both B2C and B2B. After graduating I had my own business as a consultant within intellectual property rights, after that I've been employed in different Sales positions in the telecom- and IT industry.
Dave: What are some of your hobbies?
Johan: I like being outdoors, hanging with friends and family, going out with the boat, playing golf and other sports–and as soon as I get the chance we head out to the Archipelago in Stockholm where we have our summer house. I also have two small kids keeping me busy, they are always up to something, which keeps me active.
Dave: Why did you choose to work for SalesScreen?
Johan: We invested in SalesScreen at my former workplace. I loved it from the start. I also got to know some of the people at SalesScreen and I realized that they weren’t just easy going, they were also very dedicated and loved what they did–so when the opportunity presented itself, I took it.
Dave: What are your expectations of working here?
Johan: My goal is to contribute in any way I can to the team and be a part of SalesScreen’s exponential growth journey. Especially in Sweden and in the Stockholm region where I'm positive we can make a serious dent in the near future.
Dave: What unique qualities or skills do you bring to the table?
Johan: I'm a people person. I really like interacting with other people and conducting business at the same time. I hope with my experience in sales and working with getting new companies off the ground, that I can be a good fit to the team..
Dave: Have you ever worked for a startup? Are you excited about it?
Johan: Yeah, I'm stoked! Since I have experience from startups before, it was a no brainer being a part of setting up shop in a new market. That's the best part, seeing something grow and knowing you had a part in it.
Dave: Describe your personality.
Johan: I'm very easy going and always try to see things in a positive view. I'm also very tenacious, if I put my mind to something, I won't quit until I see it through. I've been told in former workplaces that the office is too quiet when I'm away...I guess that's a good thing ;)
Dave: What's your favorite quote?
Johan: 'CFO: What happens if we train them and they leave? CEO: What happens if we don’t and they stay?'
