Recommendations and endorsements I have recieved from managers, reports and colleagues.

"Svein-Magnus is a thorough and efficient guy. He figures out things quickly, and does not need a lot of input to do a good job. He has a intuit understanding of what is important, and what can be left for later. In my position at the same level as Svein-Magnus, we often made use of each others work and insight, I valued the work he did, and will continue to use the templates and procedures he created."

Jørgen Adam Holen (June, 2014)
"I had the pleasure of working with Svein-Magnus as his Team Manager, and if I were to describe him with only one word, that word would be "accurate". His precision pervades all his work, thus his productions hold very high standards. He also distinguishes himself with vast knowledge about many fields, even outside of IT. Svein-Magnus represent a tremendous resource for almost any IT-enterprise."

"Svein-Magnus worked at Itera Consulting during three years that were full of changes. During these years Svein-Magnus contributed actively to redefining the focus of the company and to realizing Itera’s new strategy. He also delivered very good projects for many different clients. His skills, optimistic personality and his good sense of humor made him very popular among his peers.
We will miss him and hope that we will meet again in the future."

"Svein-Magnus kan beskrives som usedvanlig dyktig og profesjonell innen fagområdet brukeropplevelse (UX) og informasjonsarkitektur. Han evner å levere gode resultater enten det er å arrangere workshops, utvikle overordnede konsepter, designe skjermskisser for en fagapplikasjon eller å skrive html/CSS/Javascript koden som skal til for å få webløsningen til å fungere.
Svein-Magnus er også en trivelig og omgjengelig person med allsidige interesser og engasjement deriblant Open Source, åpne data og sjokoladesmaking. Han er meget kunnskapsrik på mange områder, så om man har gleden av å jobbe med Svein-Magnus vil man aldri gå tom for diskusjonstemaer i lunchpausene."
