Initially CEO of the tech startup Zero Error Systems PTE LTD in Singapore, Carsten Drachmann has extensive global experience as CEO and Senior Executive in both well-established companies and start-ups in the space, IT, and SatCom sectors.

Together with the rest of the management team, Carsten will execute on the strategy and product investment program following the planned rights issue.” – Jukka Pertola, Chairman of the Board (GomSpace)
