PlanMill CEO Thomas Hood is named as one of Top 100 IT Influential Figures in Finland last December 11.
Hood won this prestigious accolade for the third time now and has been nominated seven times since the list was published. The annual recognition is published by the prestigious Tietoviikko magazine in honor of the top 100 IT Finnish influencers.
"I am pleased to be nominated again by Tietoviikko into this prestigious group of movers and shakers in this field. At the same time I would like to take the opportunity to thank my team. Without their constant support and hard work our achievements would not have granted us this honor," says Hood.
Specialized in high tech management and business development, Hood has led PlanMill Ltd. since 2001 when it first stepped into the CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and PSA (Professional Services Automation) business. From the start, its committed management had a strong vision of future possibilities for the company as well as for its partners.
Prior to PlanMill, Hood spent ten years leading and managing high-growth sales and consulting organizations such as CA, Enfo (former Disnet), ICI and Westend ICT (former TJ Group) in the information technology services and plastic industries. In 2007, the company enjoyed rapid +200 % growth of SaaS business.
The Tietoviikko list in 2009 contains 33 new names in several categories including IT infrastructure, mobile technology, and software security encompassing visionary entrepreneurs as well as successful global companies. Related materials (in Finnish): Tietoviikon TIVI-lista 2009
