Formerly, President and Chief Scientist of a $9 million leading USA sales company in the Sound & Vibration business. Prior responsibility reflects outstanding career growth and progress through various high-tech businesses, including European Product Line Manager for Hewlett Packard’s Dynamic Signal Analyzer Products and International Business Development Manager for a $60M company group in the sound and vibration industry, as well as multifunctional responsibilities including sales and marketing, strategic planning, engineering, but also finance and human resource leadership. Have also founded several companies in the sound and vibration business segment and performed as a Board of Director member.

He has a doctorate in underwater acoustics and have performed multiple projects for the Swedish navy but also for navy groups outside Sweden. He has developed unique underwater systems for current measurements together with wave height measurements, advanced LOFAR and other innovative underwater signal processing methods like The Symmiktos Method™ and the MPCA Method™ and the state-of-the-art metal cutting system Acticut®. His patent portfolio includes more than 25 patents. He has received multiple industry awards for his outstanding work in effectively combining academia with industry.
