"I've been in game development since the 90s, and I've seen the industry go from analog and offline, to digital and online with millions of users active at the same time. Having extensive experience from one of the world's largest gaming companies - Electronic Arts - I look forward to addressing some of the challenges that digital companies often encounter: scalability, payment solutions and an active community. Through my construction company Ortalis Group, I have also seen the challenges that manufacturers, property managers, and construction companies face on a daily basis. For that reason, I'm very enthusiastic about working with BIMobject's Board and using my experience to accelerate digitalization in relatively analog industries" says Patrick Söderlund.
"Patrick has unique experience in scaling up digital projects from their initial phases to becoming world-leading products. With his expertise, we will continue to build BIMobject into a global winner, where the whole world's building, construction, and interior design products will be featured on our platforms. Additionally, Hjalmar's extensive knowledge in managing tech companies will help us to continue to revolutionize industries that haven't fully adopted digitalization yet" says Stefan Larsson, founder and CEO of BIMobject.
