MY BACKGROUND

I’m married and have two small kids. I live in Skødstrup just outside Aarhus. Born and raised in Northern Jutland (Himmerland) before moving to Aarhus to study.

Employment-wise, I have always worked in the financial IT space, with critical systems and infrastructure being it supporting trading operations or payment infrastructure.

Besides being CIO in DC, a few years ago I worked for Danske Bank, Nets and Bankdata i.e. on SVP and VP level.

WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

Since I’m not really a newcomer, I knew about the DC values and setting so obviously I wanted to rejoin. Furthermore, I truly believe in our 2025 vision and want to play my part in getting there and just be part of that exciting journey ahead.

it’s extremely important for me and all of IT to have “our eyes on the ball” and continuously adapt to our business needs

WHAT I DO

I’m Chief Information Officer in DC, which means that I’m overall responsible for our IT strategy and all IT-related activities. In DC, we do almost everything in-house, from development to core infrastructure.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

Actually it’s hard to describe a typical day since we’re operating with so many exciting things in a fast paced environment, but I try to balance being close to people and the daily deliveries with the more forward-looking activities – it’s extremely important for me and all of IT to have “our eyes on the ball” and continuously adapt to our business needs.

Rasmus Lundgaard Pedersen best part about my job

THE BEST PART OF MY JOB

There is so much to choose from, but if I should take only two elements:

  1.  A clear winner is my colleagues from all over DC: their values – skills – cooperation – engagement and fun. I have not experienced similar elsewhere. In this sense, DC is unique and something we must value and nurture.
  2. Closeness and cooperation with our business, it brings alignment and engagement – and is key for joint success.
