How Minerva became a world class PLM consultancy


I have been with Minerva for more than 20 years. That is half of my career.

I started out as a systems developer in Denmark’s biggest retail group and was there for 9 years. That experience gave me a solid foundation within enterprise software but at some point, I felt the need to develop my skillset and I became aware of this exciting new company called Minerva.

I was intrigued and got in contact with Asger Thierry and finally made the switch to software consulting at Minerva.


Brought a lot of technical experience to Minerva

Starting out as a software engineer, I gained a technical perspective that I also brought into Minerva as a technical business consultant. That was a clear advantage for me, as the ERP/PLM market in Scandinavia was not as developed as it is today. I got the feeling that I helped develop the market and the individual companies at that time, which was very exciting.

Other than helping to mature a market, I also felt that I contributed to developing and maturing the technical skill level inside Minerva – as well as contributing to developing Minerva as a unique workplace.

We did work hard, putting a lot of hours into it, but we had – and still have fun – while doing so.

So, I really believe that it was a common effort by all to help make Minerva a unique company in the IT industry and a world class consultancy within the PLM sphere.


Trying something different

Sometimes, when you have been at a company for a certain amount of years, you feel that you would benefit from trying out something else. Investigating whether the grass is greener on the other side. See what you are missing.

I felt the need to try a world outside of Minerva – but after a month in the new job, I came to the conclusion that Minerva was the right place for me anyway, so I contacted Asger and I was back at Minerva again.

Now, it has been 20 years for me in Minerva. I still feel we are at the start of the journey. I am so excited to see where the journey will take us next.
