A few weeks ago, Jonny Synnergren started as new IT manager at NTEX. Jonny joined NTEX from consulting firm Evry, where he has held various roles for the past nine years. Among other things, as a key account manager and most recently responsible "architect" where he designed IT infrastructures for large customers with operations in several countries.
- My dream scenario is for NTEX to become one of the leading players in IT in the freight industry, says Jonny Synnergren.
Jonny Synnergren knew early on that he would work with data and technology. After his studies in Computer Science at Chalmers, he worked for a couple of years at the IT company Koneo before it was time to start his own company. Ten years later, the big Nordic IT service company Evry came knocking on the door and suddenly Jonny and his four employees had several thousand colleagues.
- I was at Evry for nine years in various positions. Most recently, I worked as what we call an "architect", which means that I was responsible for and designed large customer IT infrastructures. Primarily it was when customers had multiuser platforms and were scattered in several countries around the world, Jonny says.
However, after almost a decade at Evry, Jonny thought it was time to do something else.
- I have followed NTEX's development over the years and when they contacted me and wondered if I was interested, I thought it would be quite exciting. I had the opportunity to work alongside the former IT manager for a few months, analyzing and forming an opinion on what the job would mean.
Jonny has a clear vision of how the IT environment should develop and make NTEX one of the leaders in the freight forwarding industry.
- In the near future, we will have another IT maturity in the business. What the customer will really notice is a greater attention from NTEX employee, as they will in turn have better tools to enable them to work even better together.
- We also look at a number of purely operational things, including RPA robots to handle manual flows, Jonny concludes.
