Founder & CEO
For over 25 years, Jes Nagel has been an innovative leader in the European technology market. While studying at the University of Copenhagen, he gathered a small group of friends and developed pioneering communication software, and traveled to Taiwan to pitch it to investors. This trip was the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with the Asian market.
For more than a decade after University, Jes strengthened his International business skills by managing European markets for US-based technology companies such as Microsoft, Fox Software, Ashton-Tate, and Storage Solutions.
In 1995, Jes founded Fibrenetix, a company that focuses on high performance, cost effective storage products, and was a pioneer of PATA and SATA based RAID technology. Leveraging opportunities outside UK headquarters, Jes combined manufacturing plants in Asia and Spain with R&D in Ireland to grow Fibrenetix to a world-class provider of storage with key markets in the Middle East, Japan, China, Europe, and the United States. In 2010, Fibrenetix headquarters relocated to Denmark, marking the company’s growth in the global market.
