Industrial digitalisation specialist extends management team

Having previously created various offerings within industrial digitalisation, industrial digitalisation specialist Novotek AB has taken the next step to extend and enhance its management group, by adding Veronika Grozdanovska as Chief Information Officer (CIO). Veronika has extensive experience in delivering digital industrial solutions across the globe, to various sectors and vertical markets. The addition to the management team places a richer focus on people, digital transformation and business innovation.

Veronika has worked with industry leaders including General Electric and has held several senior and leadership roles. Most recently, Veronika returned to Sweden, having taken a role with Novotek to develop and support its customers to create their digital journey.

“My ambition is always to inspire people towards common goals. I strongly believe that with the right communication to the right people at the right time is the key to any success,” says Veronika. “I am truly looking forward to guide and lead the digital transformation development at Novotek, together with our customers and partners.

“Novotek have given me the freedom and possibility I have been looking for, in a role where I, together with my new colleagues, will develop innovative business models and guide our customers through their digital journey, in order for them to succeed and continue to be relevant in the new digital reality.”

During Veronika’s career, she was working with and for various blue chip industrial organisations, gaining first-hand experience on how to start, plan and implement industrial IT solutions.

Veronika’s passion is to merge people and cultures into the digital journey, not only focusing on technology. “Change and innovation culture is more important than technology,” according to Veronika.

“Novotek’s key to success during our fantastic 35-year history always started with technology and moved towards business flows and processes. At Novotek, we identified a need to pivot, by adding a new dimension to our approach,” explains Tobias Antius, CEO of Novotek.

“This is the natural next step in both Novotek’s and our customers’ common journey. Where we connect all parts of digital solutions of the future, it is clear you have to look at the whole value chain. To get people into this transformation is crucial in order for the new technical solutions to work. I see Veronika as the right person to take on this challenge and I’m looking forward to what she will add to our management.”

Veronika will join the management group at Novotek taking responsibility for digital transformation and innovation. She will be working within the holding company Novotek AB in the role as CIO, reporting directly to CEO Tobias Antius.
