We are happy to welcome Johan Kummeneje as our new Operations Manager. Johan has an extensive technical background, and has among other things worked as CTO and data center specialist. We sat down with Johan to learn more about him and how he will support our customers.
How long have you worked in IT?
I have worked in IT since 1994, but it has always been an interest of mine. For the last 8 years I have had high responsibility positions in various companies: CTO at Binero, CTO and data center specialist at Infront IT Partner and business unit manager for hosting at Internet Vikings.
What will you be doing at 24 Solutions?
In simple words I will be the Operations Manager, which means that I will make sure that we do the right things in the right ways. My role will be to work together with our IT Operations Manager Kristian Roos to support, steer and improve the company.
Why 24 Solutions?
I see it as an exciting and interesting challenge to take a well functioning organization and see how it can be improved. The role is a little different from what I have done before, but the core is still the same – to steer a company in the right direction.
How will you strengthen 24 Solutions?
As always, a new person in a company will bring a fresh new perspective on things, and will be able to identify improvement areas. I also have a long technical background, and will be able to see things from a helicopter view.
How will you support our customers?
The customer should always be the main focus. When customers experience problems or issues, we should function as a partner. I will be an additional contact for our customers, someone who can see things from both a technical and business perspective.
What do you think is the biggest challenge in IT at the moment?
This is a difficult question, but I think that a priority for companies right now should be getting compliant with GDPR. A lot of companies are unprepared, when information security should be at the top of the agenda in all companies.
What do you do when you’re not working?
Right now I’m doing a lot of running. I will be running Stockholm Marathon on June 2nd, which will also be an exciting challenge!
