Founder of e-conomic takes UK MD role

The founder of online accountancy software provider, e-conomic, is to become
the new UK managing director as the company comes under criticism that it may be
reducing investment in the UK.

Anders Bjomsbo, currently the chief operating officer, is to take on the new
role and reassures customers that e-conomic is not reducing investment in the UK
market contrary to recent reports in the press.

Bjomsbo said: ‘There has been so much unfounded speculation in the press that
the UK is down-scaling its sales effort, or indeed that we are pulling out of
the UK market.’

‘Nothing could be further from the truth. Our targets and predicted sales
from the UK and Europe are the same’ he adds.

Bjomsbo continues that ‘The characteristics of the UK market have changed
considerably since our launch here and we feel the UK operation would benefit
from closer attention and hands-on management from the board.’

Anders replaces Mark Davies who leaves to pursue other interests and will
retain his COO position but group management responsibilities will be shared
among the board.
