Earlier in his career, he worked in the early phases of design and specification of GSM systems with Ericsson. In this role, he was part of the global expansion of mobile communications, working in Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany and the UK, driving the systems acceptance of such notable global telecommunications players as Vodafone, Orange and Telefonica.
