CEO Allan Thorvaldsen
Allan’s combined 20-plus-years experience in shipping and IT served him well as MSP SoftCom Solutions ApS and SoftScan ApS co-founder. SoftScan was subsequently sold to Symantec in 2009. Allan’s entrepreneurial spirit proved useful when he worked in direct and channel sales throughout Northern Europe. Allan also is a seasoned business developer within Software-as-a-Serivce (SaaS), and he was behind Denmark’s first online auction service in 1998. His extensive background helped pave the way to co-founding Panorama9 where he oversees the marketing and communications functions. Allan met Panorama9’s Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder Diego d'Ambra during high school in Copenhagen, and the two are still friends and partners more than two decades later. Allan loves spending time with friends and family when he’s not working with the tremendous Panorama9 team.
CTO Diego d'Ambra
Diego is the former chief architect and co-founder of SoftCom Solutions ApS and SoftScan ApS. He’s an entrepreneur at heart, and he has worked in IT for more than 15 years as a developer and chief architect on projects for both SoftCom Solutions and SoftScan. Diego also was the sole inventor of the much-touted, SoftScan hosted e-mail scanning service. Having worked with computers his whole life, Diego’s a real avatar and thinks he should have been born as a computer.
