About Joakim

Bio

Old timer from the borderland between traditional and new media. CEO and president of the digital developing agency Mindpark owned by five strong media houses.

Understands users, technology, content AND the commercial aspects of publishing in our time.
Also, sometimes I dig in and get dirty hacking some LAMP, Lasso, some Java and even Applescript - but its all just for the fun of it.

What others say:

Nicklas Lundblad, European Policy Manager, Google
“Joakim combines the vision of the true early adopter with the searing criticism of the constantly unsatisfied client. He will tear you apart when you do things he disapproves of, and worship you when you get it right. He is as honest as dangerous and as insightful as he is corrosive. Full frontal entrepreneurship combined with the attitude of a military tank scorned. He has helped us to realize much about our business and given us the advice, ideas and criticism to help improve what we do. I fully recommend him. I can assure you that you will learn something from working with Joakim. Even if it hurts.” December 8, 2008
