Colego reinforces management team
Internet service portal Colego today announced the accession of two experienced profiles from the Internet world. These are Mads Transel, former VP at the telecommunications company 3, who will be taking the role of Chief Sales Officer and Peder Skjalm Lissner, former CFO of Saxo.dk, who joins as Chief Financial Officer. Both enter Colego’s management.
Less than two months ago Colego announced the accession of Internet entrepreneur Tine Thygesen as Chief Marketing Officer. With the two new profiles joining, Colego has succeeded in reinforcing the management team significantly this year. As part of the same growth plan, the company has furthermore been provided with an additional € 3 million this June.
“I have learned that a strong management team is key when it comes to a company’s success rate. Therefore, I am happy to see that Colego has succeeded in attracting such strong profiles, especially at this crucial time where the company is in extreme growth ” Peter Mægbæk, chairman of Colego
The new CSO Mads Transel brings solid sales experience from positions which include Vice President Business Sales & Marketing at the telecommunications company 3, VP of Oister and his own entrepreneur project Voicebird. Mads joins just as Colego is expanding beyond the Danish border and his main focus will be the international expansion of the business.
Peder Skjalm Lissner comes from almost 5 years as CFO for Saxo.dk – one of Denmark’s earliest Internet successes, which currently holds almost 80% of Denmark’s e-book market. Peder Skjalm Lissner’s former employments also include Finance Director at TDC and Finance Manager for Diageo. Peder enters Colego focusing on data and finance.
