After 11 years Jan Skjold has decided to leave DBK. While Jan had his last work day in December, a farewell reception for him was arranged in the beginning of January 2015.
Jan’s career started in Motorola in 2001, where he and Bo Wassberg worked together on convincing commercial companies to use the TetraNet, which was the initial name for SINE. At that time Motorola already had the frequency license and the operator permission in place, and when the first client, Movia, signed up, the occasion was celebrated by establishing Dansk Beredskabskommunikation A/S.
The First big job for Jan was to prequalify Dansk Beredskabskommunikation for the bid for the SINE network with the Danish Government. That showed to be a huge task, including a lot of work over a long time. After 6 years of preparations the success was a reality. The contract was signed in 2007, and the SINE network became a reality in 2009 were it was rolled out all over Denmark. Throughout all the phases Jan was the main contact person from DBK towards the Danish Government/Rigspolitiet, and that has been the case until his resignation from DBK. Jan will be missed within DBK and also by his customers over Denmark for his fast brain and always sharp observations.
