ABOUT MISSING LINK
"The TV industry is changing at warp speed and I often meet confused producers who are having a hard time navigating a global market where business-models and keyplayers change by the month.
I want my company to be the ‘missing link’ between them, their IP and projects and international networking, revenues and recognition."

In June 2015 I left my previous role as COO and MD of Nordic World to start up my own format company
called Missing Link Media – with the simple business model to be “the missing link” between IP owners and the international industry.
With my extensive know-how of producing and distributing everything from primetime entertainment, game-shows, reality shows, events, docs and musicals - I now use my broad TV-background within Missing Link Media to consult for small and large companies on sales, development, distribution, strategic issues, creative partnerships and international expansion.
I have been on the board of the global non-profit organisation FRAPA since September 2012 and now serve as co-chairman of FRAPA. In this capacity I often speak at various TV Festivals and I have - among many - been speaking at Shanghai TV Festival, Asian Television Forum in Singapore, twice at Dubai TV Festival, twice at NATPE Budapest and dozens of times at MIPTV, MIPFORMATS and MIPCOM.
FRAPA is a 19 years old, global, non-profit organzation, with the clear mission to be the home of the int´l format business by providing protection of IP and information and networking for producers, creators and distributors from all over the world.
"I would like to be the 'missing link' between you, your IP and projects and international networking, revenues and recognition. I offer executive TV industry knowledge, consultancy and management. Mail me."
