Meet Roger, our team leader who has helped Clinton to start the Umeå-office and who believes that the recipe for a successful team is great people and trust.
It all started when Roger together with his family was planning to move to Stockholm. He was familiar with Clinton after been following the company on LinkedIn. At one time, he and Victor, the regional manager in Stockholm at that time, connected and the rest could have been history. But after almost a year Roger and his family changed their plans, Stockholm wasn’t the place for them at that time.
“I moved back to Umeå, started a new job, but stayed in contact with Victor during the hole time. And during the spring 2020 he came to me with the opportunity to start a Clinton-team in Umeå.”
Clinton had done a strategic plan, together with Roger the plan was put into operation and is now reality. And it couldn’t be a more successful start. The team is growing in a great way together with inspiring projects.
“The market up here is aspiring. Umeå and the north of Sweden has potential and together with a team of great people I knew we were going to succeed.”
Roger describes that the success factor is trust, which he gets from his managers and are giving to his team. And the freedom is important, to be able to take the projects that he believes is the best for the team and to know that the organization stands behind them if they for example needs help with anything.
“I believe that nobody can do it all but together Clinton can solve everything. It’s therefore important to have an organization where everybody helps each other even though we work in different regions. Everybody is only a phone call away.”
He believes that it is important to have the right competence in the right place, which means that competence development is important. Both for the individual development’s sake and to be able to prepare for what is to come.
Looking ahead Roger would like to keep developing as a leader and to grow together with the team. He also describes himself as a surveyor-geek who always wants to try new software’s. His focus right know is Gemini, which he is learning by joining a workshop together with Clinton colleagues. He believes that the software will be a great asset to Clinton since we are working a lot, and will do even more looking ahead, within infrastructure, modelling and volume calculation.
