As you might have heard, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a new General Manager: Erik Tiden.
He got a great online welcome via Waldo's blog. Well, not a welcome, but a clear message he has some big shoes to fill.
Last wednesday during speakers dinner for NavTechDays 2012 I had the pleasure of sitting next to Erik and and got the chance to know him a little better. We talked about SAP where he has worked earlier and Dynamics NAV. I also introduced to him what the MVP program was all about, although not in a conventional way.
Erik can be described as a "Swedish German" who now lives in Denmark. This is not a bad combination for someone to lead NAV.
With just three weeks on the job, NavTechDays was clearly a great way of introducing the community to him. I can only imagine it as trying to swim in the deep without diploma.
He has the priviledge to announce the great release of Dynamics NAV 2013 which he did during the keynotes.
I wish Erik a great time at his new position and expect great things.
You can watch Erik do the keynotes here.
With kind regards,
--- Erik's new Dutch friend --
It was clear that it was you he was referring to in his part of the keynote. ;-)
