Empowering the world with data, mind, and heart.
BECAUSE TIME MATTERS
The world is complex, dynamic, and ever-changing. That’s why we take a fresh look at the world – every day. We are not afraid of being different, rethinking normal, and taking different paths.
TimeXtender and the World
We give back time to the world – as time is the only finite resource. That´s why we truly believe that time matters and why we are constantly on the lookout to simplify and automate, and then execute on what matters most.
We seek to free up more time in the world – to do good and get it right. We are on a path to have impact on our world, challenging the way we work and think, and empowering the future for generations to come – we are here to make it right.
Our future well-being, environmentally and socially, lies in the decisions we make every day. We choose to focus on specific Impact goals, as we want our business to be a force for good in the world.
We believe that to make big changes in the world, we will need to start small in the communities we serve, eventually leading to a growing, lasting impact.
TimeXtender and our Software
We set the bar high; for ourselves, our partners, and customers! And we keep raising it! We take pride in automating the tedious and mundane. Our future-proofed Data Estate Builder solution for building modern data estates enables getting to data-driven decisions 10X faster than with standard methods.
Data is unlike any other asset in our world. It never wears out, it never drains, it can be used again and again, and we only get more of it! The real value in data comes not only by having it easily accessible, but applying your mind and heart to make decisions with the data!
A look into our past
Where we come from
As a founder of an IT consultancy business, Heine Krog Iversen found that giving businesses access to data was a tedious, expensive and time-consuming task. His consultant’s time was filled with repetitive coding tasks at each customer site. Then they frequently handed projects over to other employees, which was also very time-intensive because of the multiple, intricate, hand-coded scripts. It was also expensive and time-consuming for the customers, as they poured money into data projects with long implementation times and demanding resource upkeep. These frustrations lead Heine and then Chief Data Architect, Thomas Christiansen, to investigate an automated solution with the least possible demand for individual hand-coding. From an IT point of view, they found that the hand-coding tasks involved in the process of extracting data were the same no matter the size or type of business. With this revelation, Thomas began developing a tool that would automate this process, ultimately making it more time-effective and standardized. Heine saw the global potential in the tool and how it could become a true time-saver and game-changer in data management. So he founded TimeXtender in 2006 to dedicate his time to develop and market a platform that automates the data management cycle. The cost savings are evident as the platform has proven to be more than 10 times faster than the traditional approach.
Because ultimately, Time Matters.
We believe in cross-organizational teamwork, trust and flexibility – not in middle managers.
So we choose to aim for a flat and super agile organization where cross-organizational teamwork, trust and end-to-end accountability are key principles! To support that intent we have organized ourselves into “Purpose Circles.” TimeXtender’s leadership is dedicated to empowering and coaching these self-managed teams to achieve more.
TimeXtender’s founder and CEO
“What you think, you become,” Buddha once said.
If you become what you constantly think about, Heine’s not only a member of the Forbes Technology Council and the Founder & CEO of TimeXtender—he’s what he thinks about all the time: he is TimeXtender.
Whether he’s enjoying a walk through nature or a barefoot seaside stroll, his mind is never far from his passions: family and TimeXtender.
Those passions, and a focus on giving people and companies back the most precious resource in their lives—time—have guided Heine as he has led TimeXtender from its founding through its joining forces with leading investment firm, Monterro.
Through it all, one constant remains: TimeXtender’s—and Heine’s—core purpose. To empower the world with data, mind, and heart. Because time matters.
Anne Krog Iversen
CHIEF DNA & CULTURE OFFICER, CO-FOUNDER
What do you get when you cross an organizational culture thought leader & Forbes Council member, a mindfulness practitioner, and an undercover baker?
Well, instead of the answer to a fairly odd-sounding riddle, you have Anne Krog Iversen, Chief DNA & Culture Officer at TimeXtender.
Rather than trying to contort TimeXtender into organizational spasms in order to conform to all-too-familiar (read: innovation killing) business norms; Anne has used her role to help crystalize TimeXtender’s Core Beliefs, call attention to its Core Purpose, and provide its Xpeople a context to be and do their best.
Head of Global Finance
Klaus is our Global Head of Finance & Operations ninja with numbers. He works tirelessly to ensure concise, efficient, and timely financial reporting which is vital for our company’s fast-paced structure. Klaus is passionate about creating robust and dynamic financial modeling and regularly combines his personal skills with his professional proficiencies to produce superior work.
Klaus holds a Master of Science degree in Management Accounting and Control from Aarhus University and has shared his expertise on such topics lecturing on Mathematics, Statistics and Quantitative Methodology.
When Klaus is not doing financial magic at TimeXtender, he is a dedicated sportsman. As a highly competitive, he always races for the one & only spot on the podium no. 1 (exactly like we all do in Timextender every day in the world of data). Besides sports, Klaus is enjoying time with his dear ones.
Head of Xpeople Growth & Talent
If it involves creating contexts for meaningful moments, propelling people toward their potential, or, oddly enough, learning karate, you might just find Line Sakstrup, TimeXtender’s Head of Xpeople Growth & Talent nearby. That’s if you can get her to sit still long enough, that is.
She’s both inspiring and inspired by coaching and leading her circle, helping propel TimeXtender into the forefront of the future of work, and helping Xpeople continue to grow and develop into who they’re meant to be.
And in-between all that, you’ll find her running to kid’s sports activities, reading, learning karate (yes, you read that correctly), and having—or insisting, rather, on—meaningful conversations with friends about life, work, the world, and how to have an impact on all three.
Juan Jose Keena
Chief Marketing Officer
…is a linchpin.
Or, as one of his favorite writers and marketing icons, Seth Godin, further implores marketers to be, Juan….is a storyteller. He’s a storyteller who loves helping write TimeXtender’s story as we continue our journey into the future of work.
Those who know him best might ascribe any number of descriptors to him:
- Tech guy.
But perhaps above all, Juan just might be a romantic.
He loves marketing, he loves TimeXtender, he loves wife, and he’s recently fallen in love with his newborn son.
Head of Partner & Customer Success
People use the word passionate too flippantly these days, because until you’ve met Joseph Treadwell, our Head of Partner and Customer Success, you’ve not really experienced “passionate” yet. We’ll try not to use the word too often during this bio, but no promises.
What’s Joseph so passionate about? You’re expecting us to say “TimeXtender” right here, and while he is indeed passionate about his work here, you should catch him in the middle of a heated board game battle with his bride and brood of three amazing kids.
But if we’re strictly talking shop here, Joseph’s been part of TimeXtender for almost a decade now, and over that time, he’s grown to become a passionate—there’s that word again—advocate for not just TimeXtender, but for partners and customers, too.
He loves (Whew! That was a close one.) ensuring that customers are happy, and he loves equipping partners with the knowledge and expertise they need to be successful with TimeXtender.
Chief Financial Officer
If you think Klaus is your stereotypical, abacus-using, bean-counting, numberbot Chief Financial Officer.
Mountain biking, too.
Still not? OK.
Klaus also runs. And hunts.
Oh. And he kitesurfs.
To be candid—and you mustn’t tell him this—some of us are convinced he’s an undercover secret agent of some sort.
In his spare time, he’s also a fantastic Chief Financial Officer for us here at TimeXtender, where he enjoys being part of our growth journey and seeing the organization meet and exceed our goals.
Aside from that (and the not-to-be-mentioned secret agent thing), he rather enjoys spending time with his family and friends.
VP OF ALLIANCES
Fredrik Ehno’s track record of success within the Data & Analytics space is one that anyone would be happy to have, but he’s not really focused on that.
What’s he more excited about these days? Oh, that’s easy.
If Fred’s able to provide an insight that’s just what others need to then, in turn, solve a partner or customer problem—that’s the sort of value-add that makes Fred’s day.
Or if he’s able to take something from being an abstract idea and transform it into a real result for a customer, partner, or teammate—there, again, is where Fred thrives and finds meaning.
When it comes down to it, Fred’s going to be just as happy building connections between customers, partners, and fellow Xpeople at TimeXtender as he is when he finds some fresh greens to putt on in Stockholm (which is not always easy to do).
David M. Danielsson
Chief Technology Officer
“What is a ‘More About Someone’ section, anyway? Is it not but a means to an end? That end being readers’ minds ingesting the information necessary to construct a particular construct, which, in this case, is that of a person?
“Is it a fleeting, mental snapshot—and a subjective one, at that—conjured by your mind as a result of combining your own perception, neural dynamics, and Bayesian computation into a coherent framework for understanding the avatar of the subject that is right now evolving in your cerebral cortex?
“And if any of the above are correct, does it not then follow that—”
Apologies. I believe we may have accidentally tapped into a temporary live feed of David’s mind deconstructing this “More About David” section.
You see, a native Icelander, TimeXtender’s Chief Technology Officer David Danielsoon has long been fascinated by how things work.
From early on, David found himself wanting to better understand how things work by deconstructing them. And it’s not just that David wants to know how things work, mind you; he also wants to know why they do what they do.
Couple that with advanced education in engineering, great experience, and a mindful approach to his work, and you have the Xperson we’ve grown to know and love.
