Saxo Bank’s Ole Rossing scoops up IT award



Gentofte, - Ole Rossing is the first-ever recipient of the award, which will be handed out annually to an IT executive who demonstrates excellence in strategic management, measurably impacts company results and development, and is a trailblazer in the deployment of highend technology.

IIn a profile appearing in Børsen in connection with the award, Ole Rossing was commended for his central role in the strategic direction of Saxo Bank. The bank has no separate IT strategy – rather, IT is a fully integrated part of the company’s total strategy, placing Rossing in a particularly pivotal role for the bank’s success in recent years. He has also been a key driver of the bank’s exponential growth in recent years. Ole Rossing came to Saxo Bank eight years ago, at which time the bank’s IT department numbered just seven employees. Today, Rossing leads 200 of Saxo Bank’s 575 current total employees.

In 2006 to date, Rossing has overseen the successful rollout of the first significant upgrade of Saxo Bank’s signature trading platform, SaxoTrader, which recently garnered seven gold medals in the Euromoney FX Poll. He also commandeered the launch of Saxo Bank’s first browser-based platform, WebTrader, and continues to oversee technological strategy as Saxo Bank expands into London and Southeast Asia.

In a statement on the award, Ole Rossing says: “It is an inexpressible honor for me to accept this award, which is given by my respected peers in the Danish IT industry. It is an acknowledgement of the absolute seriousness and urgency with which we treat every aspect of IT here at Saxo Bank, as well as the spirit of innovation that we bring to every project in our scope. Our goal is to be the most professional IT bank on the planet, and it is a delight to receive such high praise from our colleagues in that regard. It’s an award I am proud to share with the entire IT department.”

Commenting on Ole Rossing’s award, Saxo Bank co-CEO Kim Fournais says: “We are thrilled and delighted at the news of Ole Rossing’s award, which speaks volumes about the role of IT at Saxo Bank and the total professionalism and credibility he’s brought to our IT function over the past eight years. This is a great badge of honor for Saxo Bank.”
