Simon Berggren

I am the one who knocks.

I’m driven by ambition, compassion, and a genuine passion for technology and mentoring. As a Technical Lead on Geshdo’s Tech Excellence team, I wear two hats – one as a mentor and knowledge builder, and the other as a senior IT Consultant. My passion lies in guiding and nurturing our consultants, empowering them with the skills they need to excel. Simultaneously, I’m actively engaged in the field, helping clients overcome their technical challenges. Whether I’m mapping out architectural blueprints or diving headfirst into code, I’m in my element. Problem solving and optimization are close to my heart, the scale of the problem doesn’t matter; what counts is the journey to the right solution for the right problem.
