Press Release

Jørn Ellefsen has been appointed Innofactor’s Country Manager and Managing Director of Innofactor Denmark as of January 10, 2020.  Jørn has 25 years of experience in the ICT sector and has held several management positions, including Country Manager of Innofactor Norway, Sales Director and VP Insight at Acando Norway, Founder and CEO of the Enterprise Search company Comperio and Sales Director for Oracle Norway. He began his career in ICT with the IT consulting company Computas.

He will also continue as Innofactor’s Country Manager in Norway. Jørn joined Innofactor on March 1, 2019 and has since successfully led the business in Norway.

Vesa Syrjäkari, Executive Vice President, Business Planning and Operational Excellence at Innofactor Group, who was acting Country Manager of Innofactor Denmark, will continue to support Jørn during his transition to the new role. Going forward, Vesa will focus on his overall responsibility for Innofactor’s Nordic business processes and the coordination of their activities to strengthen the development and roll-out of common ways of working.

"I am very excited and humbled by the opportunity to lead the Danish business together with Innofactor Norway. The synergies are strong, especially on building a Secure Cloud practice in Denmark leveraging our learnings and success in Norway and bringing the Analytics success from Denmark to Norway. We have a unique market position and I look forward to increasing the momentum with our fantastic Danish colleagues," says Jørn Ellefsen.

"I have mixed feelings, because it’s been such a great honor to work with Danish team. I’d like to thank everyone for their great co-operation and trust, and in particular the team leads and Sales Director for all their support. At the same time, I am fully confident that Denmark will continue profitable growth under Jørn’s leadership," says Vesa Syrjäkari.

Jørn has done awesome job in Norway and I am sure that he will continue same way in Denmark. Innofactor does not want to create any extra organizational structures or roles. At this point, we see that the best option for Innofactor’s business is that same person will take the responsibility for both countries, even if they will stay separate strategical business units at Innofactor’s management structure. I trust that with Jørn’s leadership, we’ll find new opportunities to leverage our talent and expertise in Denmark and Norway to the benefit of our customers in both countries”, says Sami Ensio, Innofactor’s founder and CEO.
