Roderick Nilsson

Financial Director

What do you do at The Techno Creatives?

Responsible for finances and supporting management with anything from legal, HR to purchasing. Keep a steady eye on costs and ensure that cashflow is strong. As a tech house, agility is at our core. Therefore I focus on advising and planning ahead rather than looking back and keeping score like traditional accounting.

What were you doing before you came to work at The Techno Creatives?

Before joining the Techno Creatives, I was Financial Director at Burt (media analytics and big data) for two years. Before that I was at West Atlantic (air freight) for five years, where I worked with M&A, capital raising (bonds/IPO), financial controlling, procurement and sales. Initially started off within banking at SEB in parallel to B.Sc./M.Sc. studies in Financial Economics at the School of Business, Economics and Law in Gothenburg.

What do you find to be the biggest difference in your daily experience now and before you worked at The Techno Creatives?

The biggest difference is in the culture. The team is always leaning forward on how to improve and build the next exciting product, exposition to support our customers. Likewise, as we build new ventures and leverage the rare combination of skillsets in-house - with experience in everything from design, development, various types of engineering to business strategy.

What do you find to be an important factor in your work culture?

I believe in independent and creative freedom coupled with transparent (data-driven) accountability. Rather than to instruct people with tasks and orders, provide them a mission. That enables them to leverage learning and take initiative upon decentralized information. 

Mention three things you like besides work

I cherish cooking for family and friends. Play a lot of racquet sports and floorball besides trying to improve my golfing. Love exploring new places, have a current goal is to have visited all regions in Italy before 2020.
