WE ARE HAPPY TO WELCOME OUR NEW COLLEAGUE - Karl Westerberg!
Sigma is growing and we are always looking for talented people who wants to join our team. Meet our new colleague Karl Westerberg who is joining our team in Seattle as a Business Development Manager. Karl has a background working within the IoT world.
Karl, tell us more about yourself?
"As the first person in my family born in America, we didn't have any other family on this side of the ocean, but fortunately North Dallas had a large influx of Swedish families at that time with many families in the same position that banded together to continue Swedish traditions. Growing up with both languages at the same time, we spoke Swedish at home and English with our friends - and even had weekly Swedish schools for the children to learn reading and writing. I took online courses again in high school to solidify my learning"
Have you ever visited Sweden?
"My family spent nearly 2 months every year back in Sweden to immerse me in the culture and visit family, which kept my love for my heritage alive. This tradition stopped when I could start working, and got my first job at 16 in the new IKEA in Frisco.
Still, my upbringing in a hybrid Texan/Swedish culture was very different to that of everybody I knew, and being able to spend a lot of time in Stockholm and far out in the countryside gave me a love for Sweden and a drive to continue its culture and heritage."
CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND?
"I began my education with a large emphasis on technology and computer science but figured out that I was far more interested in economics. So i finished my BsC in that. After I graduated I have worked in many various analyst roles in different industries, collecting experience and exposure in understanding how to find value throughout departments within an enterprise. I joined an IoT startup to make my way to Seattle and entrench myself in the IoT world. While there, I did many things from business development, to leading a small dev team for proof of concept work, vendor management, and solutions."
"Sigma is pioneering the world of IoT, they are an industry leader of technology services, and Sigma has the integrity to do a project/solution thoroughly and properly. There's also the added bonus of joining a Swedish company and the culture that comes along with it, which is something I have wanted for a long time.
What I want to do with my time here at Sigma is to use my understanding of both the business and the technology to show all of our clients/partners how to create and maximize value from our IoT and technological offerings.
IoT is necessary to keep track of our complexity-increasing world, and with Sigma I believe we can connect the world the right way, the best way. With European advancement and American business sense, I believe we will make this happen."
Thank you KARL!
