Klaus Bruun Egeberg
Head of Mobility & Connectivity, A.P. MOLLER – MAERSK
I am passionate about strategic exploitation of technology and IT to deliver future customer centric capabilities. Expert maritime and industry experience, with solid engineering and business administration degrees I have in many positions and with great teams, created ground breaking products and platforms. I have had many roles during my career, skilled electrician, programmer, project manager (in many shapes), technical manager and technological strategist/scout - I am capable of dressing up for a multi-disciplinary role and to navigate in complex organisations and projects. To develop my DNA in creating radical innovations and disruptive business models, I have added an Executive MBA in Technology and Innovation, following a personal and professional ambition of delivering through competency, hard work and a lot of fun.. All this can be boiled down to the fact that I have always been passionate about technology and how it can be used to create and shape the future.
