Configit’s Copenhagen headquarters was recently visited by a group of public officials from Michigan to discuss Configit’s upcoming U.S. expansion.
The group, consisting of Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, Director of Michigan Department of Transportation Kirk Steudle, CEO and President of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Jeff Mason, Business Development Representative of Oakland County, Michigan Charlene Page, and Investment Promotion Director, Michigan Economic Development Corporation and State of Michigan Vlatko Tomic-Bobas, toured Configit’s office and attended meetings to discuss the role Configit’s new office in Detroit will play in the growing automotive industry in the United States.
“The meeting was very productive,” said Henrik Reif Andersen, CEO of Configit. “It was encouraging to hear that our views of the U.S. automotive industry are completely in line with those of the local government and economic development groups. We shared thoughts and insights on the future of Configit and our growing U.S. presence. We look forward to continuing to expand our footprint in the North American automotive industry.”
Configit is scheduled to open its first Detroit-area office in Southfield, Michigan in December, and plans to hire more than 50 highly skilled people within sales, marketing, R&D and consulting.
