'I chose to work for SalesScreen because I was looking for a workplace with a fun working environment. I was actually referred by a client of SalesScreen to apply because it is known to be a great place to work, which in my short time here I have found to be true.'
Oslo, Norway — Mads brings his unique educational background, determination and humor to the SalesScreen team.
Dave: What is your work education/work background?
Mads: I attended BI business school where I studied Shipping Management from 2011 to 2014. I continued my studies and went on to take a Bachelor's degree in Hotel Management at Høyskolen Kristiania. Friends often tell me that with my “special” educational background I could start my own cruise ship! During my studies, I have worked mostly with sales and customer relations.
Dave: What are some of your hobbies?
Mads: Tennis, squash, football and gaming. I played tennis on a competitive level during my younger years, and I believe I have mastered the art of playing with a racket. Therefore, I have started doing the same with my feet. Although my teammates would say I am far from mastering anything when it comes to football–but I consider myself to be slightly better than Pirlo.
