Mikkel and I met whilst both working for a Danish construction company in London in 2000. I was working there in between university studies. I worked closely with the MD managing high-end large residential home technology projects and was given a huge amount of responsibility at a young age. I also learnt how to compile and submit large tenders for projects ranging from £½m - £3m. Mikkel had arrived in the UK looking for work as an electrician. Mikkel had studied in Copenhagen as an electrical engineer prior to leaving Denmark.
I continued to work at this company after I completed my Law degree. In 2003, Mikkel was offered the exciting opportunity to start his own electrical company and undertake all the electrical work for this builder as a subcontractor.
Mikkel and I became best friends whilst working together and in 2009 we became husband and wife! I left the Danish firm to work alongside Mikkel within his electrical business. Our client base was very niche at that time and the projects were large and complex. I learnt how to deliver exceptional service, the importance of attention to detail and how to manage large contracts in terms of pricing and accounting.
Mikkel is an expert in his field and hugely passionate about using technology to provide solutions and designing systems which will simplify and enhance the lives of our clients. We found that we worked well together and inspired each other. Although we are both creative, I provide the stability, detail, and structure whilst Mikkel has visionary ideas that push the boundaries of what is technologically possible!
