Netigate, Schiöld Eye Expansion In Mainland Europe

Netigate announced its plans in 2018 to expand further into continental Europe, as well as the United States. Kim Schiöld will guide those expansion plans while also building out both the strategic and tactical capabilities of the sales team.

Schiöld’s journey at Netigate started in 2014, when he cold-called the company with a solution to improve their sales team. He soon joined and set about optimising the company’s sales processes as Head of Sales Development, which has led to record-breaking sales.

“I’m thrilled to take on this unique challenge at Netigate,” Schiöld said. “During my time the company has grown into the leader in the Nordic region and now we’re looking forward to taking on that challenge in new markets.”

Prior to his promotion, Schiöld served as the Head of Sales Nordic, where he oversaw both the sales and business development teams in the Nordic region.
