Queue-it’s CEO and Co-founder, Niels Henrik Sodemann, has a substantial background within IT and business management.
Originally, his expertise was primarily within software development, adding on infrastructure project skills and roles along the way. System and website performance was always in his mindset, as he designed and implemented solutions, and the challenges that all transactional IT projects face in this context were a great part of the inspiration for the creation of Queue-it. While having advised clients on how to best manage web performance at the peak load situation, he has gained deep insight into the issues affecting load times and scalability.
As his career progressed, Niels added on business, leadership and financial skills, within which he has a proven record of accomplishment of growing software companies from a small team to 100+ employee exit.
Niels is a strong and dedicated leader with a strategic mindset and he knows how to drive and transform a business with great professionalism. He is driven by passion for his work and he never hesitates to take the lead in situations that require true leadership and tough decision-making.
Before his entry into the IT and internet industry, Niels was a professional yachtsman, holding several championship titles. He is a multiple World Cup Champion, and was also part of the winning team of the highly accredited Admiral’s Cup in 1993, onboard the German Yacht, Pinta. The Pinta team, including Niels, was awarded with the Silbernes Lorbeerblatt (Silver Laurel Leaf), the highest sports award in Germany.
Niels has supplemented his original nautical and technical education with an MBA from Copenhagen Business School and an HD specializing in Organization and Strategy, also from Copenhagen Business School.
In his spare time, Niels is still a sportsman at heart and enjoys yachting, skiing, ice hockey and running.
