“For me, Proact is a significant player with a strong brand in the Nordic IT market, offering solid expertise and perhaps the most satisfied customers in the industry. Of course, as a “Proactivist” I am looking forward to being part of this winning team and leading an experienced, knowledgeable organisation forward. We build trust through our daily commitment to customers, while being a long-term and relevant partner that creates value through continued digital transformation,” says Magnus Lönn.
