As of January 2022, we are happy to announce that we’ve got ourselves a new CEO!
His name is Jens Blom.
This decision is an important piece of Onix’s growth plans for the coming years. Creating growth is close to his heart. Jens has several years of experience as the international sales director at Planday, a software company that grew massively over those years. He has also been a part of Onix’s board for the past years, so he already knows a thing or two about our business. Jens has been involved in making many right decisions, but also some wrong ones. You learn from them too, says Jens.
Many of you know our founder Bernt as the face of the company, but rest assured – luckily, he is still with us! Bernt will have an important role in business- and product development.
So, join us in welcoming Jens. Let’s get to know him a little bit more.
