The cobbler’s children always go barefoot.
This age-old proverb tells us a story about an ambitious shoemaker that, in his quest to sell shoes and attain satisfied customers, completely forgot to put shoes on the feet of his own family.
As the premier Board and C-Suite Evaluation platform, helping hundreds of companies across the Nordics and the UK, the Cobbler’s Children Syndrome has never been an option for BoardClic. Not in the past – and not in the future.
We have had an amazing 2021 as we tripled our team in size and quadrupled the amount of BoardClic customers. To prepare for the next step in our growth journey, we are pleased to welcome three new board members: Thomas Falck, Liselotte Hägertz Engstam, and Christoffer Hartung.
Thomas served as CFO at Cognite until September 2021, and works as a professional board member and investor in various SaaS based growth companies. He has previously been CEO of Q Free ASA and Visma Marine ASA as well as Group Partner in Verdane Capital.
