Paw Steffensen appointed as the new General Manager for AlfaPeople Nordic
In response to an ambitious growth plan and the efforts to strengthen the European organization Paw Steffensen has joined AlfaPeople the 1st of July. With a flying landing in the new role, he has taken on the responsibility for scaling up the Nordic part of the organization and will additionally be collaborating closely with the General Managers in Germany and Switzerland to focus on securing the international perspective, that makes AlfaPeople one of the strongest Microsoft Dynamics partners in the world, with offices in 14 countries and a full dedication to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 FO and CE business solutions and the Power Platform.
Commenting on his appointment, Paw Steffensen said “I am really excited about this new challenge and are fully committed not just to strengthen AlfaPeople’s footprint in the market, but also to make sure that we are embracing the paradigm shifts in the industry and are an attractive modern workplace, that offers employees flexibility to live their best worklife. No matter if this for the individual means working remote, in a hybrid set-up or full time at the office. Some employees likes having a suitcase packed, ready for them to be able to catch the international opportunities our global set-up makes us able to offer. Others are happier when staying on the ground and be able to work with a more local focus. AlfaPeople can offer both”.
Paw Steffensen is a well-known face in the Microsoft Partner industry. For more than 20 years he has provided Danish and international companies with value adding consulting and has played a significant role in scaling up the organizations he has been a part of. He thrives in an ambitious fast paced and international environment and are passionate about driving growth and organizational development through people “the absolute key to achieving great results are our employees. It´s the sum of our talent, efforts and collaboration across the organization, that makes us able to accelerate. I closely link the visions for both our Danish and global business with the attraction and retention of the right people,” says Paw Steffensen.
As General Manager he is looking for people, who shares his passion for the industry, but also likes to be a part of a unique organization, that allows employees to be themselves. Throughout most of his own career, Paw Steffensen has been particularly focused on two things: leadership and customer advisory. He finds great inspiration in seeing employees develop and shine, just as it is commercially satisfying to design and implement solutions of very high quality, that instantly helps companies achieve their business goals. Both aspects will be shaping the culture in AlfaPeople.
Paw Steffensen´s ambition is to help drive an organization build on a strong fundament of deep professional knowledge and expertise. But also to attract people, who absolutely loves what they do and genuinely want to be a part of an international organization, but without the usual bureaucracy that normally follows, “The initial DNA and the entrepreneurial spirit on which AlfaPeople was founded is still intact. Translated into everyday life, this means, that our employees have great influence on their own workday and the direction we are heading towards. Being a successful company and to make sure the employees have a meaningful career, where they are able to make a difference every single day is very much a key goal. We have a really exciting time ahead of us and I´m here to help making sure, that we win as a team,” says Paw Steffensen.
