04.08.2016

OpusCapita, the Nordic market leader in e-invoicing and financial processes, strengthens its international sales and software knowledge by appointing Danish Jesper Ritsmer Stormholt as Head of Global Sales and Marketing and a member of the Leadership Team, as of August 2016.

Ritsmer Stormholt joins OpusCapita from the international search engine giant Google, where he most recently was in charge of B2B-sales in the Nordics. Jesper Ritsmer Stormholt has also international sales experience from DACH and rest of Europe.

OpusCapita aims to facilitate business payments, procurement and cash management globally into digital age, and thus increase companies’ transparency, control and predictability. The appointment of Jesper Ritsmer Stormholt will support OpusCapita’s target to become a leader in the global buyer-supplier ecosystem market.

“OpusCapita is already a market leader in the Nordic markets where the level of digitization is high. We aim to expand the global reach of our innovative solutions for automating and digitizing how companies buy and sell. Jesper brings OpusCapita great experience and energy in international expansion of such disruptive digital solutions”, explains OpusCapita’s CEO Patrik Sallner.

Ritsmer Stormholt, whose latest position at Google was leading Nordic sales for the IT Enterprise Service unit, finds B2B purchase and payment processes to be surprisingly manual, while digitalization in B2C commerce has progressed much further.

“Businesses are going through a digital transformation journey towards their customers. This journey is just starting in digitizing how businesses buy, sell and pay each other. This is the next wave of transformation. OpusCapita is at the right time and place to drive this change”, says Jesper Ritsmer Stormholt
