Say hello to Henrik Thurén, the VP of R&D at Netadmin. In this interview, we get a glimpse into Henrik's responsibilities, his passion for driving transformation, and his thoughts on Netadmin and our accomplishments.
Hi Henrik, can you describe your role at Netadmin?
My role is to lead Netadmin’s R&D department. R&D’s purpose is to build awesome products that our customers love and help them achieve their goals. By doing that, we can build a business around our products, making Netadmin a true “Software for Life” provider that our customers can trust long-term.
What are you passionate about being a VP of R&D at Netadmin?
Netadmin is undergoing a significant transformation in its business operations and technological landscape. During this dynamic period, I am particularly enthusiastic about the pivotal role of research and development (R&D). The convergence of business innovation and cutting-edge technology presents an exciting opportunity for Netadmin to evolve and thrive.
I am eagerly committed to contributing to this transformative phase with my passion and expertise.
Tell us about your proudest work-related accomplishment.
It’s hard to single out a specific accomplishment. What I’m most proud of is the fact that we as a company have gone through many challenges throughout the years while keeping our flag high, adapted when necessary, and at the same time largely retained our customers’ trust in us as a business partner.
When and how come you start working here with us at Netadmin?
Many years ago, an old friend of mine mentioned this new business idea he and some of his colleagues had been considering about selling an in-house developed software solution to other companies. The rest is, as they say, history.
What is the best thing about Netadmin?
The people, our customers, and being a small software company but in a large family of other software companies that share similar challenges and possibilities.
