Gain & Co on growth journey in the US and Europe
Søren Pap-Tolstrup is joining Gain & Co as the company is expanding fast in especially the US and Europe. Since last year, the company has opened offices in the US and UK and doubled both employees and revenue, driven by a growing interest from Fortune 500 companies.
Labor shortages in the manufacturing industries on both continents are causing more and more businesses to invest in robots and automation with robot installations reaching record levels last year. Navigating these opportunities and ensuring a financially sound outcome is an ongoing challenge that Gain & Co helps businesses solve.
“I have seen first-hand the incredible potential of automation but also the many challenges businesses face with these new technologies in getting the outcome they are hoping for,” said Søren Pap-Tolstrup. “The need for independent advice to help businesses make the right decisions is bigger than ever before.”
Søren Pap-Tolstrup will be based at the company’s offices in Copenhagen, Denmark.
