His identification with the range of products and corporate philosophy of the Schweers group as well as his market and branch know-how for many years now were the deciding factors for entrusting Torben Andersen with a new job position in the Schweers International group of companies. His new job position can be described as “Mr. Parking Denmark” of Schweers International. He has just been named as Branch Manager of the Schweers Consult GmbH Nordic. In an interview he spoke about his professional career up to now, the reasons why Schweers International is a very fascinating company and why he is looking forward to his new job challenge, as well as about future business goals.
The interview was conducted by Christian Dick.
Question: How long have you been employed with the company Schweers Consult GmbH Nordic now and how did you become an employee of the company?
Torben Andersen: I have been employed with the Schweers Consult GmbH Nordic since 2006. At that time the Schweers group was basically a hardware manufacturer of the handheld computers for parking enforcement, like the X600. The Schweers group bought a competing company in Denmark, with which I was employed at that time.
I originally have a Software Developer background and studied Information Technology at the University of Copenhagen. I was needed for my detailed knowledge about the products of the overtaken company and contacts in the Danish market. I was therefore hired as a project manager and the connecting link to the Danish customers. At the same time, I could assist Schweers in integrating the Ticketman handheld computer and software systems.
