Hello! My name is Henrik Höglund and I’m part of BearingPoint’s Financial Services team – more specifically the Banking Products & Innovation team. The work we do is revolving around business consulting and helping our customers to succeed with their endeavours – not only managing, but also excelling in whatever they are trying to achieve.

What is your own professional background?

I have roughly 15 years of experience in the banking and financial sector, mainly working with cards and payments. During that time I’ve been lucky enough to have a broad area of responsibilities, being involved in all kinds of interesting projects bringing new technologies in the market, such as contactless payments, first pre-paid cards working globally, Mobile Pay and setting up and implementing new payment platforms. The reason why I applied for BearingPoint was that BearingPoint has a unique and strong foothold within the financial sector, and that has enabled me to join in on several interesting projects seeing how different companies are doing things within the industry.

What do you like about working at BearingPoint?

I’ve really enjoyed working at BearingPoint so far! The colleagues are very knowledgeable, very helpful and there is a great sense of humour here at the office. In some projects the time schedules can give a sense of urgency to it all, but BearingPoint has a strong follow-up on how many hours are spent in each project. I feel that even though it’s a lot down to how one personally arranges one’s time, there has been a really good work-life balance involved in the doing here.
