Conscensia, one of Denmark’s leading Nearshore IT development companies, hires Annette Kvist as new Sales Director. Annette comes from a position as Vice President for IT Development at TDC, and has worked with consulting, sales and management of IT development since 1991. At Conscensia, Annette joins the management team and has the overall responsibility for sales and the commercial relations to the company’s clients in Denmark.
Conscensia’s strategy is to increase the turnover significantly by covering the almost insatiable need for IT development resources, which many Western companies experience these years. Annette Kvist says, “I’m incredibly happy to work for a company like Conscensia, which solves one of the big challenges that I have experienced grow year by year – namely finding qualified IT developers in a productive and cost effective way. I’m confident that the market is open to nearshoring and a company like Conscensia, which focuses on long-term strategic partnerships with dedicated teams for our clients.”
Carsten Hansen, CEO at Conscensia, adds, “We are very happy to welcome Annette Kvist to Conscensia. There is no doubt that her extensive experience with development and development processes in some of Denmark’s largest companies, is a significant enhancement of our ability to help, challenge and guide our clients through the considerations about and implementation of nearshore development.”
The Danish Business Authority estimates that Denmark will lack more than 19,000 IT specialists in 2030. And a recent survey from the Danish Business Authority reveals that more than every 4th Danish company have been unsuccessful in recruiting IT specialists within programming and development within the past year. In Conscensia’s experience, many companies’ time-2-market is too low or they end up losing orders or growth possibilities due to lack of developers.
A partnership with Conscensia gives companies an easy, quick and secure access to highly educated IT resources in Ukraine. Conscensia has more than 11 years of experience with establishing and integrating 100% customized and dedicated development teams for each client, and we have an excellent track record in retaining our skilled employees. Therefore, the clients can focus on operating and developing their business instead of struggling with unsuccessful recruitments and lack of developers.
In Ukraine, Conscensia has a development center in Lviv with 170 employees and the city has about 15.000 highly educated IT specialists. Conscensia’s fundamental philosophy is that IT sourcing needs to be done properly, as it is a strategic decision with a great positive business value, if done properly. At Conscensia, we call it Responsible Sourcing.
