Unwire’s main customers are banks and payments services companies in the financial sector and includes e.g. NETS, Nordea Swish in Sweden and Swipp in Denmark. In the past 2-3 years, Jens’ top priority in his position as CEO has been to ensure that Unwire has and will maintain a clear technological edge in the mobile payments industry while, at the same, realising the full business potential of the company’s unique strengths and capabilities. To fuel his aggressive growth ambitions for Unwire, Jens has recently launched several initiatives internally in the company to both develop new and innovative mobile technologies and, at the same time, to develop Unwire’s business in new geographical markets and to target new customer segments. In his career, that spans almost 25 years, Jens has worked almost half of the time as a top-management advisor and strategy consultant, with e.g. McKinsey & Co. and other leading management consulting firms. In the other half of his career, Jens has held some hands-on line management positions in large cooperations, including Oracle and A.P. Møller – Mærsk. Regardless of the positions Jens has held, his work has always been related to technology and how to apply it in business, and he is considered one of the leading experts in mobile payments in the Nordic region, which is the most advanced and developed markets in the world. Jens has a technical background as MSc in Engineering from The Technical University of Denmark (DtU) and holds an MBA from INSEAD in Fontainebleau in France
