As I sit down to pen this message, I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude, nostalgia, and anticipation. It’s hard to believe that my journey at Silverfin, spanning a decade of dedication, passion, hard work (and a lot of fun!!), has come to an end. The chapters we’ve written together have been truly incredible, and I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved as a team.
One of the most defining moments in this remarkable journey has been the recent acquisition of Silverfin by Visma. This acquisition is a testament to the incredible efforts and dedication of each and every one of you. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire Silverfin team (past and present) for making this moment possible. Your commitment and hard work have not only built a successful company but have also been instrumental in shaping our unique culture, which has been the key to our success.
Culture is the heartbeat of any organization, and at Silverfin, our culture is something truly special. It is the driving force that leads us through the challenges and celebrates our successes. Our culture of innovation, collaboration, and a relentless pursuit of excellence is our secret weapon, setting us apart from the competition. I am confident that under Visma’s guidance, this culture will continue to thrive and evolve.
I also want to express my sincere gratitude to our clients, the early adopters, the believers, and the strong partnerships we’ve built over the years. Wow, what a ride this has been! Without your trust and support, our journey wouldn’t have been possible. Your feedback, patience, and unwavering belief in Silverfin fueled our growth, and for that, we will be forever grateful. The relationships we’ve nurtured will undoubtedly last a lifetime, and I look forward to seeing how they continue to flourish in the Visma family, and I look forward to staying in touch.
As I step away from Silverfin, I am taking some time to reflect and consider what’s next. This moment affords me an opportunity to spend some absolute quality time with my family and friends. They have always been the driving force behind my endeavors, and I am excited to have this time to create more memories with them.
Looking ahead, my next adventure will involve helping founders and founding teams in building the next wave of kick-ass tech companies, although I don’t know in which shape or form yet. There’s never been a more exciting time to embark on the journey of entrepreneurship. The world is hungry for innovation, and I am eager to share my experiences, insights, and support with those who are ready to make their mark.
In conclusion, I want to once again thank every single person who has been a part of this incredible journey. Silverfin has been my life’s work, and it has been an absolute honor to lead and work alongside such an exceptional team. Our future is bright, and I have every confidence that Silverfin will continue to thrive and challenge the status quo in the industry.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being a part of this remarkable journey. I look forward to staying in touch and witnessing the incredible future that lies ahead for Silverfin.
With gratitude and warm wishes
