To build and lead the Danish business, EGGS has recruited the experienced CEO and businesswoman Susanne Lund with a background from both the creative industries and the financial sector. She opens the EGGS Denmark office on March 1 at the Rainmaking Loft, Holmen in Copenhagen.
Susanne states, "I'm impressed with EGGS' ability to innovate and execute. In collaboration with the clients, EGGS has been involved in 350 new product and service innovations, all of which make a positive difference for people - from helping children take their asthma medicine, giving passengers at Oslo Airport a better customer experience to improving the quality of life for diabetes-affected immigrant women. At the same time, EGGS leadership has managed to build a very strong culture under the mantra 'creating the world's best creative nest', making EGGS a very attractive workplace".
We are excited to welcome Susanne Lund. We were looking for someone with the right leadership skills - one with the ability to create the unique EGGS culture establishing the best foundation for creativity and job satisfaction and thus enabling us to attract the best talents. In this regard, Susanne is the perfect match.Ulla Sommerfelt, CEO EGGS Design
I am excited to take up this role to help realizing EGGS' strong potential in Denmark and become part of a strong international team of strategists, innovators, designers and tech people. EGGS is positioned in a very attractive cross-field, combining profound human insight and solid business understanding with strong creative, innovative and technological skills.Susanne Lund
In Norway, EGGS Design is particularly known for its business cases in the maritime sector, healthcare, finance and the public sector, but the firm operates across all industries.
We see that companies want to become more customer-centric, while looking for new ways to cope with the challenges and opportunities of new technologies, sustainability and other trends. They want tangible solutions in terms of products and services that make life better for their customers and employees.Ulla Sommerfelt, CEO EGGS Design
The market for strategic design, innovation, design thinking and digital transformation is growing and has a great potential in Denmark. The latest industry analysis from the Confederation of Danish Industry (Dansk Industri) shows that in Denmark the consulting industry as a whole has grown by five percent in recent years, while design and innovation as an advisory field have grown by eight percent. In comparison, the management consulting industry in Denmark has a turnover around EURO 2,7 bn, IT consulting just over EURO 5,4 bn, while design only accounts for EURO 400 m. In total, the consulting industry in Denmark delivers a yearly turnover at approx. DKK 155 bn.
Customers choose design methodologies rather than the more traditional advisory approaches, and they want products and services designed to perfection and in accordance with their brand. In EGGS, we work with ambitious customers, and we are looking forward to bring our offerings to the Danish markets.Ulla Sommerfelt, CEO EGGS Design
