Read about the history of Globeteam – we were founded by two consultants in 2001 and we are now a successful consultancy firm
In 2001, two consultants founded Globeteam and today, seventeen years later and with a turnover of 85 million DKK, around 70 consultants work to optimise the business and IT of leading private and public companies.
Globeteam was created by former board member, Erik Arnbak, and, current CEO and board member, Claus Moldow, in 2001. They both know each other from previously and, based on their long and fruitful cooperation, they decided to establish their own IT company with a unique business model.
A unique business model that strengthens commitment
As opposed to other consultancy companies, the founders created a unique business model that ensures a strong commitment between the individual consultant, the client and Globeteam, through a business-to-business relationship based on agreements. The consultant is bound by contracts covering the agreements they have entered into. Our business model has proved essential to attracting, and keeping, important and interesting clients, as well as competent and committed IT and business consultants. As a client you can read more about the benefits of this business model here, and as a consultant you can read more here.
Our organisational culture is characterised by a pioneer spirit and close cooperation between 70 consultants, management and the board. In just a few years, Globeteam has managed to create a client portfolio, an area of expertise and deliver solid financial results.
History – business areas are adjusted to the needs of the client
In 2001, Globeteam started offering services within IT Strategy, Project Management and Microsoft.
In 2003, the “Human Touch” business area was implemented.
In 2004, turnover was more than 20 million DKK, and a new “ERP” business area was established.
In 2007, turnover was 60 million DKK, and we entered into a joint venture with a local partner in Vietnam, upon establishing an “ODC” (Offshore Development Center).
In 2010, Globeteam made an organisational change and our teams were divided into a series of smaller and much more specialised teams.
In 2010, Globeteam also offered an internal course for consultants and employees, to establish a culture that focuses more on sales and clients. The course has been offered every year from 2010 to 2014.
In 2011, Globeteam established a sales department to operate and strengthen account management for our clients.
In 2012, as the company grew and the needs of the world around us changed, it became necessary to consolidate strategy and services. Therefore, Globeteam focused on their services withi
- Business Consulting
- IT Infrastructure
- Development of Software
In 2013, Globeteam further strengthened its Business Consulting areas, by engaging more new consultants and sales people. Globeteam’s consultancy competencies range from strong business consultants to experienced technology specialists. This makes it possible for us to meet clients’ needs, and combine their business units’ ambitions and employees’ behaviour when it comes to technical competencies and insight.
This combination of consultancy competencies also means that we are in a completely different league to other consultancy firms. We carry out second opinion assessments of very complex projects within the public sector, which is in the media spotlight.
In 2014, Globeteam created a division in Jutland, Denmark, and started cooperating with several new IT consultants who had businesses there.
2014 was the year in which one of the original founders of Globeteam, and president of the board, Erik Arnbak, handed over the chairmanship to Mogens Elsberg, former CEO of GN Netcom, who will now challenge management and Globeteam’s strategy moving forward.
In 2016 Globeteam doubled its turnover from 2011 and reached 140 million DKK.
In 2018 Kirk Kapital has bought 34 percent of the IT consultancy firm Globeteam. This is because Kirk Kapital has acquired the shares of DICO A / S’ investment company, C13, as well as the shares of former board member and co-founder of Globeteam Erik Arnbak.
