SKIDATA and Scandinavia Updates: In February 2019, SKIDATA will Welcome Odd Melgård to the Management Team Nordics for SKIDATA Scandinavia AB

On February 1st, 2019 Odd Melgård will join the SKIDATA organization. By this addition to the team, SKIDATA Scandinavia based in Kil, Sweden will extend their solutions and services portfolio to the full SKIDATA parking portfolio, in addition to the established mountain and event segments. As an experienced manager, Odd brings the know-how and skills needed to address rapid changes and demands within the regional markets of the Nordic Region and will be a valuable asset in attaining SKIDATA’s goals in the region.

SKIDATA Scandinavia AB’s current General Manager Ägidius Lackner will stay responsible for the overall organization and continue to further drive the People Access business in the Nordic region.

The Scandinavian arm of SKIDATA has been operating for 29 years for the region since being established in 1989 in Sweden. For nearly three decades, SKIDATA has grown to serve Scandinavia and Finland in the markets of mountain and ski as well as events, including stadiums and arenas.

In addition to mountain and events, SKIDATA will continue to find the perfect solution for current and potential customers in the parking industry, offering a wide range of customizable, dynamic hardware and software options. With around 10,000 installations in over 100 countries, SKIDATA offers the ultimate mix of personal service with extensive experience also in the parking industry, having grown to one of the top access providers across the globe.

These moves allow SKIDATA to increase business with cross-segments sales of solutions and services, offering customers complete packages unlike any other corporation. As the industries jointly move towards increased digitalization, SKIDATA Scandinavia can increasingly support customers directly from start to finish.

SKIDATA will continue to work with its valued distributors and partners in Scandinavia as before. In addition SKIDATA Scandinavia is excited to work directly with customers to realize full solutions. This increased efficiency in dealing directly with the SKIDATA subsidiary guarantees customers the ultimate business relationship with a leading digital solutions provider.

This market continues to be an extremely important one, both historically and for the future and SKIDATA continues to invest in the success of the Nordic region by further strengthening the organizational structure to address future growth. SKIDATA is honored to have established many successful business relationships with its local and regional customers and looks forward to continuing these partnerships with the planned changes in 2019.
