Mikkel brings great experience of helping private-equity-backed technology businesses to scale rapidly and achieve sustainable growth. Previously, he was CFO at the IT infrastructure provider GlobalConnect A/S and HR and payroll software developer Lessor A/S. He also served as CFO and COO at mobile payments provider Swipp. Mikkel began his career in management consultancy with Deloitte Business Consulting, Telenor and TDC.

 

As a member of Infare’s senior leadership, Mikkel will develop the finance function to best support the company’s growth strategy and to create value for customers and shareholders.
 
Nils Gelbjerg-Hansen, CEO of Infare, says:

“Mikkel brings a valuable strategic perspective to the CFO role and will help Infare capitalise on the significant opportunities before us. He has an excellent track record in helping businesses achieve their potential, by implementing automated and digital processes, by focusing on business intelligence, and helping boards to take the right decisions. As Infare responds to the rapidly growing pricing intelligence needs of our customers, we are delighted to welcome Mikkel to our senior team.”

 
Mikkel says:

“Infare is in a very exciting position, with a strong product offering and excellent reputation in a niche that is experiencing fast growth. High-quality airfare data and analytical tools are becoming increasingly mission-critical to the aviation and travel industries. I look forward to helping Infare chart a profitable course through this fast-changing environment.”

 
Mikkel succeeds Peter Freiesleben, who is leaving Infare to become an active investor in young growth companies.
 
Nils comments:

“I would like to thank Peter Freiesleben for his important contribution to our development. He made a significant impact to the company’s growth and profitability, which was recognised for three consecutive years by Danish business newspaper Børsen with its Gazelle Company Award. I am sad to see Peter leave, who I today call my personal friend, but understand his motivations and wish him great success in the next chapter of his career.”

INFARE’s CCO talks with Routesonline about How To Use Airfares in Airport Marketing

16 July, 2018
Copenhagen, Denmark

 

Harald Eisenaecher, Chief Commercial Officer of Infare, looks at how airports are discovering the power of fare data.
 

 

“Real-time actionable data in the airport space is limited and historic, but airports want information that is forward-looking. More airports are adopting airfare data because it meets that need. It looks into the future and can provide instant answers, rather than having to wait weeks for fresh data to become available. This clarity can be invaluable day-to-day and particularly when meeting airlines in pitch situations…”

– Harald E., CCO of Infare, answering the question “Are more airports leveraging airfare insights?”
