ProData Consult completes generational change in management
4 December 2020
The board of directors at ProData Consult has appointed Anders Gratte as Group CEO as of 1 January 2021. As part of a generational change, Anders takes over from Søren Rode, who has been heading the consultancy since 2009. With Søren in charge, ProData Consult has expanded its activities to 6 countries in Northern Europe while delivering impressive growth and financial results. In 2020, ProData Consult expects revenue of around DKK 1,5 billion and an operating profit of more than DKK 100 million. Søren Rode continues in the management of the company as Group CCO.
Anders Gratte has extensive experience scaling and growing consulting companies in Northern Europe. In 2004, he founded the Swedish consulting company Madeo Sourcing Group, which had 2.000 consultants on assignments and revenue of more than SEK 1.5 billion in 2011 when the company was sold to the American corporation ZeroChaos (now Workforce Logic), where Anders joined Group management until 2015. Since 2018, he has been a board member at ProData Consult.
“ProData Consult is developing rapidly and going through an exciting growth phase where we will continue to grow organically in our key markets while expanding further with carefully selected acquisitions. I look very much forward to working with Søren and the colleagues in ProData Consult and to contribute with my experience and know-how, so we can continue our success and maintain our high service excellence and client satisfaction,” says Anders Gratte.
Anders Gratte is Swedish, and after a number of years in England and the USA, he has relocated to Stockholm in connection with his appointment as CEO of ProData Consult.
“We know Anders from the board, and we look forward to making good use of his experience and know-how in the role as CEO. At the same time, we would like to thank Søren Rode for his efforts and results through 20 years at ProData Consult. As Group CCO, Søren will still have close client relations and contribute greatly to our strategic development – and we look forward to that,” says Agner Mark, Chairman of the board at ProData Consult.
Søren began his career in ProData Consult in 2000 and will, in his new role, primarily focus on tasks related to sales, business development, acquisitions and integration.
“Together with Anders, I look forward to continuing my contribution to ProData Consult’s strategic development in close interaction with clients and my many colleagues. We face a very exciting period, and I look forward to leaping into the next phase with Anders in the driver’s seat,” says Søren Rode.
