EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
IN DENMARK

 

PHILIP WIIG
Country Managing Director

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 1984

 

ABOUT PHILIP | Philip Wiig is the Global Quality & Risk Management Lead for CMT, and Country Managing Director in Denmark. Philip joined Accenture in Copenhagen 1984 and has worked on large IT transformation programs in most industry sectors over the course of his career. He holds a BSc in Civil Engineering from the Danish Engineering Academy. Whilst the major part of Philip’s career has been spent in the Nordic region, he has also been working in Chicago, London, Barcelona and Paris.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | “We are experiencing a fourth industrial revolution, characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between physical, digital, and biological spheres,” as Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, precisely puts it. The digital tidal wave is reshaping and disrupting entire businesses and the way we work and live. We are facing constant change and Accenture is committed to develop a broad range of industry specific digital offerings and new business models to help our clients realize innovative ideas and redefine their businesses.
Disruption is affecting all private companies and public sector authorities in Denmark. Within health and public services—institutions are under pressure to transform and deliver services in new ways. The previous approach of complex and legislative micromanagement is clashing with the expectations of the citizens that want easy-to-understand and easy-to-use solutions at point of need. Within the financial sector, the new payment regulative PSD2 is disrupting banks by forcing them to open their accounts and transaction information to third-party competitors. Consequently, GAFAAs (Google, Amazon, Alibaba, Apple, etc.) are positioned to disrupt traditional banks, while the Internet of Things (IoT) is eliminating some banking transactions altogether. Another example of disruption is the use of robotics and advanced artificial intelligence solutions, which Accenture is already implementing in several banks and insurance companies across the Nordics.
This level of disruption affects all our industries. In order to respond, business must build strong ecosystems, which is why Accenture is connecting start-ups and incumbents across industries to spark innovation. We have established innovation boards in Denmark and we are actively leveraging our global innovation labs in the United Kingdom, France, India and Silicon Valley.
This is a time of uncertainty and radical change—which can be translated directly into enormous business potential for those Danish companies that adapt, innovate and embrace the disruption.

CARSTEN SACHMANN
Managing Director, Products

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 1990

ABOUT CARSTEN | Carsten is leading Products Nordic practice in Accenture, serving our Nordic clients within sectors ranging from industrial products, consumer goods, retail, travel to transportation across all our services from Strategy, Management Consulting, Technology and Outsourcing.

Carsten holds a MSc. in power electricity from the Technical University of Denmark and has worked with a number of clients across Products’ industries for +25 years.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | We are highly committed to develop a broad range of industry-specific digital offerings and business models to help companies realizing innovative thinking and redefine their businesses to lead the way their industries are changing – both in short and long term. By doing so, companies will not only avoid being disrupted by new parties entering the scene, but actually lie in forefront of introducing new services to their customers.

CARSTEN DAN JENSEN
Managing Director, Resources

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 1997

ABOUT CARSTEN | Carsten joined Accenture in 1997. He has a track record of successfully leading large transformation change programs for leading clients in Energy and Manufacturing industries, with primary focus on helping clients to address key challenges in operating model design, process effectiveness and technology enablement.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | Disruption is prevailing across the energy value chain, fuelled by low energy prices, conversion to clean energy sources and increasingly demanding energy consumers. Oil and Gas Operators are looking for game changers to operate aging assets safely with significantly lower cost, and Wind Power Operators are faced with demand to dramatically reduce the cost of electricity. To succeed, industries need to exploit digital technologies to be able to predict equipment failures, translate sensor data to real-time-insights and manage surveillance and control operations remotely. In order to optimize utilization of energy and water resources, investments will be required in intelligent networks and production optimization solutions available through advanced analytics. Energy Retailers are facing fierce competition, which leads to market consolidation. Therefore, Utilities must focus relentlessly on developing new value propositions and deliver customer experience on the consumers’ platform of choice, while at the same time simplify and automate operations to reduce costs.

MARTIN SJØTLOW
Managing Director, Accenture Technology

Coming soon.

KIM BECH
Managing Director, Accenture Digital

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 1997

ABOUT KIM | Kim is the Managing Director for Accenture Digital Denmark. He has extensive experience in delivering digital transformation to global companies in Denmark and Europe since year 2000. His experience span from digital strategy, business case, customer experience, implementation of complex digital transformation, to delivery of digital managed services. The digital transformations have been within both business-to-consumer and business-to-business, delivering omni-channel customer experience. The digital transformations have been delivered to clients in several different industry groups, such as consumer goods, pharmaceutical, freight and logistics, industrial equipment, high-tech and utility.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | It is said, that within five years, only 10 percent of the Fortune 100 will still be in existence. This is largely due to the disruptive changes brought by digital. The disruption is realized when innovative digital business models change the world we live in and affect our everyday, which is already highly evident. For instance, Netflix has changed the way we watch TV—and Mobile Pay has changed our approach to transacting payments.

JESPER STRØMANN
Managing Director, Communications, Media & Technology

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 2008

ABOUT JESPER | Jesper joined Accenture in 2008 and has an extensive background within management consulting. He is currently leading the Communication, Media & Technology (CMT) group in Denmark. Jesper is also Nordic Client Portfolio Lead for Communications and Technology, which includes management of clients, revenues and deliveries.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | We see new players that are moving in to the classic segments of media, communications and technology. This change means that traditional industry actors need to adapt and reinvent themselves. In order to stay ahead in today’s mobile- and cloud-first world, it is foremost important to understand your customers; how these use and consume your services. By undertaking new business approaches that are increasingly customer-centric, to identify relevant future revenue sources and keep focus on being extremely cost efficient and maintain high efficacy in operations—it is possible to deliver in this fast-paced, ever-changing environment.

MADS RAAHEDE
Managing Director, Financial Services

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 2013

ABOUT MADS | Mads joined Accenture in 2013. Prior to leading the Financial Services (FS) practices in Denmark, he led the Danish Banking Practice in which he was driving a successful expansion of Accenture’s footprint at existing and new clients and within capital markets. Mads has extensive professional knowledge and many years of experience in working with insurance companies, banks and capital markets across the Nordic region.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | The FS industry is in the midst of a digital transformation, combined with a dramatic shift in consumer behavior. In the banking sector, mobile payments are rapidly increasing and new competitors are entering the market, such as Google and Amazon that are cutting deep into the transaction part. Meanwhile, insurance companies are predicting new claims.

As we speak, we are conducting a number of projects within digital transformation where we are using more advanced artificial intelligence, like robo-advisors and virtual agents. We also see how the new payment regulative PSD2 will force banks to open accounts and transaction information to every third-party with consent from the account holder. This enables new aggregators – metabanks – to enter the scene. In the meantime, Internet of things (ioT) are providing insurance companies with a vast amount of opportunities, including connected cars and homes when software and network connectivity is built into devices and handled autonomously. The use of blockchain concepts and technology will impact the ecosystem in the mid- and long-term view by providing new prospects. However, this also implies that a number of middle-men activities will disappear. Clearly, it is an exciting time to be in FS. It will not be the survival of the strongest, but the survival of the fittest to change – for both our clients and ourselves.

OLGA NISSEN
Managing Director, Accenture Strategy

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 1996

ABOUT OLGA | Olga joined Accenture in 1996 after graduating from Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia. In 2000, she joined McKinsey’s Copenhagen office and became partner in 2010. In 2016, she re-joined Accenture as leader of Accenture Strategy Denmark. Olga has served clients across several industries and geographies on technology-enabled, strategic topics.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | &We are in the middle of a technology revolution that is transforming business, society and culture at unprecedented speed and with unseen impact. Twenty-five percent of world’s economy will be digital by 2020: a raise from 15 percent in 2005. The "born digital" generation set expectations of service, speed and personalization at the level companies have hard time to meet without changing its business models. While many organizations understand the magnitude of the task at hand, few have figured out the “how” part. Digital is inevitably transforming the way strategy consultants work with their clients. It is no longer about delivering a thick power point presentation to the board after weeks of number crunching in Excel—it becomes more necessary to partner with your clients on a digital journey with concrete data-driven and analytics-empowered digital solutions to yield faster value realization. It is much more exciting and rewarding to be a strategy consultant nowadays!

CHRISTIAN MAX HANSEN
Country Manager, Health & Public Services

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 2013

ABOUT CHRISTIAN | Christian Max joined Accenture in 2013 with focus on expanding Accenture’s footprint in the Danish Health & Public Service industry (H&PS). He has a background in management consulting and system integration with +20 years of experience in delivering value to both global and local companies, ministries and public institutions. Prior to Accenture, Christian Max has held senior management positions in global consulting companies, working with constant focus on business development and client delivery, driving a visionary and innovative agenda./p>

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | Today the H&PS practice has gained strong momentum after several years of significant growth. The digitalization of the Danish health- and public sector is intensifying and the disruption of traditional business models is transforming the way public institutions are organised and the way they will need to deliver their services to citizens and companies in coming years. Disruptions affect everything – from how public leaders act and behave, how administration is governed and executed, to what competencies civil servants require in order to be efficient in delivering on the digital agenda. We see both international, as well as EU-trends, affecting local public administration and it is clear that the previous methods of complex and legislative micromanagement are clashing with the need to deliver easy-to-understand and easy-to-use solutions.

These are exciting times for public institutions. The world is becoming smaller and the Internet of Things, Cognitive Computing and growing international collaboration and coordination makes the public sector a dynamic and challenging place to work.

CLAUS WILKKI
Director, Marketing & Communications Nordics

JOINED ACCENTURE IN | 2004

ABOUT CLAUS | As Accenture’s Nordic Marketing and Communications director, Claus leads an integrated team of passionate and diverse professionals across Denmark, Finland, Latvia, Norway and Sweden. He and his team are on point to create and lead an engaging and meaningful experience for Accenture’s clients, job candidates, employees and influencers.

WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON | The future of marketing and communications is transforming at an incredible pace, as accelerating technologies and “everything digital” has profound impact on how companies engage with customers. Marketing executives have a chance to step up and play a larger part in the digital transformation. Leading marketers recognize that broad approaches and branded content have lost their shine and are on a challenging path toward customized journeys. They are moving to creating meaningful “micro moments” in increasingly complex ecosystems of target audiences, channels and platforms. As critical as personalized experiences are to win customers, however, delivering them can be immensely challenging. Marketing operating models must become digital to the core, powered by agile technologies and digitally and analytically talented professionals to drive transformation and harness innovation. This will enable companies to act on real-time customer analytics and sentiment, and provide truly personalized customer experiences.
