Björn developed a fascination for digital worlds early on. With curiosity, a spirit of innovation and a clear goal orientation, Björn has been supporting companies in the areas of web-based solutions and digitalisation since the beginning of the "New Economy" in the late 1990s.
After studying computer science and managing international projects in a corporate environment, Björn first moved to a leading portal consultancy. There he managed the intranet business area and advised clients on the strategic orientation, conception and introduction of intranets, company portals and social business as well as general digitalisation.
