When Erik and I founded Ardoq in 2013, being CEO was a different job than it is today. For our two-person company, it involved a lot of paperwork, product pitches, and coding.
As we’ve grown the company from the two of us to 16 employees, that role has changed. Less time coding, more time doing market research and high level strategy. And while I’ve tremendously enjoyed steering the Ardoq ship through this period of growth, I also recognize that the skills and abilities required of our future CEO don’t align well with what I personally like to work with. With that thought in mind, we started the search for a new CEO, and we’ve found someone that far exceeds our expectations.
His name is Magnus Valmot, and he starts today. Let me tell you about him.
