Bo founded Cint in 1998 when he decided to apply his experience of trading online to the market research industry. He then took over as CEO in 2003 to revamp the core platform into an exchange-based offering for respondent access.
Bo spent the years between 1985 and 1997 in the financial industry and was, in 1993, named Head of Swedbank Securities. During this time, he founded NetTrade (1996), the first online stock-trading offering in Europe. In 1998 he co-founded Eurotrade.lu, later sold to Nordnet AB, and in 2000 he co-founded Mangold. Bo currently sits on the board of Nordnet, the largest internet brokerage in northern Europe as well as Room328, a web-based 3D utility for matching demand and supply within the home furnishing market.
He holds an MBA from the Stockholm School of Economics. Happy father of three almost grown-up kids, he is married to Eva and his bicycle. In his free time, he skis, plays ice-hockey and hunts (rarely hitting anything due to being a lousy shot).
Richard joined Cint in 2009 to head operations in the UK market from the Cint office in London. After graduating in HR and International Marketing, Richard then begin his career at CAP Ventures (now InfoTrends Inc.) working as a strategic IT consultant. In 2003 he joined Ciao Surveys, one of the pioneering firms in the online access panel industry within Europe, setting up the UK operations to later culminate in his role as European Managing Director. Richard was part of the management team that took the business to a successful sale of the Ciao business to Microsoft Inc. in late 2008.
Richard often represents Cint at different worldwide research events and conferences including having presented accepted papers at the Esomar Congress and at MRS events. Richard has also been a trainer for MRS workshops.
Outside of Cint, Richard lives in London and is happily married. A keen traveller, Richard’s real love (aside from his wife obviously) is sports, both watching and participating, although the latter is becoming less gracious as the years roll on. Richard still finds the time to run a 5-a-side team with old school friends, enjoying the post-match beers more than the workout these days, and his one true passion is supporting the mighty Hammers – West Ham United FC!
Marcus joined Cint in 2003 as a software developer after completing his thesis project for the company. He conceptualized and produced Cint’s first software products. He now coordinates Cint’s teams of developers located on two continents. Marcus also holds Bachelor of Computer Science (Real-time systems) from The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
He has exceptional sports knowledge but despite the fact that he was born in Sweden, he does not enjoy winter sports, preferring soccer and motorsports as well as playing squash and golf. Marcus is a loyal (Stockholm) AIK supporter.
Fredrik is responsible for reporting, accounting, treasury and all other financial aspects. He has extensive experience with the challenges met by fast-growing companies as he previously worked with venture capital backed companies for many years. Most recently as CFO for Voddler, an online company that grew from zero to almost a million customers in only six months. Fredrik also has experience from larger corporations such as TietoEnator.
Despite numerous attempts, he still refuses to tell us where the gold is hidden. Fredrik is a motorsport enthusiast, enjoys playing golf and traveling.
Stefan joined Cint in early 2011 to head up Cint Link and is now responsible for Cint’s products. After graduating from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm he co-founded CoTraveller, specializing in travel applications for the mobile devices (yes, apps were around before the iPhone was born, but a lot less colorful). A year later CoTraveller was sold to mBlox, the soon-to-become world largest mobile transaction network, where Stefan developed the Premium SMS product line which quickly became a multi-million dollar business area. After spending almost a decade in the mobile industry focusing on commercializing advanced technology he learnt quite a bit around Internet marketing while heading up the Swedish operations at Getupdated.
When not persuading people why APIs and Do-It-Yourself can benefit almost every company, Stefan is keen to challenge anyone at any sport. As long as he can choose the sport.
