I have known Jesper for over ten years and worked with him in a professional capacity on numerous different projects around Europe.
I have found him to be an intelligent, dedicated, and incisive person. He is motivated by ‘results’ and enjoys the satisfaction that comes from a task well executed.
On a person level he is good company and a pleasure to work with.

One of the keys for my own success was Jesper’s management, he never stopped believing in me or in his team he souranded him self with. Transparency, result orientation and a very positive attitude towards business would describe Jespers leadership style at it’s best.
When I look back at my time at Inditex I have to say I admire Jesper a bit for taking on the role as Managing Director. Easily one of the most challenging jobs in business.
Would I report to Jesper again, if the oppurtunity would come across? Absolutely!
