January in the world of soccer means the United Soccer Coaches Convention! Thousands of soccer coaches from (primarily) North America attend the convention that is known as “the biggest soccer event in the world”.
And tonight is the grand opening! We in Veo have sent a team all the way from Copenhagen. Let’s introduce the guys!
Veo brings a team with vast and diverse soccer experience to the United Soccer Coaches Convention. Even though we have a lot of different backgrounds, we all share the passion for soccer and sports.
Henrik Teisbæk, Co-founder and CEO
First man on the teamcard is Veo’s co-founder and CEO Henrik. Henrik has a long career in grassroots soccer in Denmark where he’s played a no-nonsense right back for all of his career. Henrik was so sad that he couldn’t rewatch his two career goals that he decided to found Veo in 2015.
Filip Domagala, Marketing Director
Our Marketing Director Filip’s soccer career as a goalkeeper in the Danish Sunday League might not go over in history. However, he brings experience from the business side of the soccer world where he has worked in the last 15 years.
Jerry Jarnald, Head of Partnerships
Jerry is organising Veo’s booth at the United Soccer Coaches Convention this year which naturally places him in the middle of the pitch. He’s the one pulling the strings and making sure the whole team works as a unit. He has been involved in soccer in Sweden for most of his life in clubs with exotic names like Djurgården and Vänersborg.
Kienn Jensen, Head of Sales
Kienn is a coach himself in Lyngby Boldklub’s youth academy which is one of Denmark’s most well recognized academies. Kienn is a natural striker on the pitch and has experience from elite soccer in Denmark where he played in several clubs in the Danish first division.
Tim Haine, Sales Manager
For some reason, unknown to the rest of us, Tim’s biggest passion in life is the sport of Rugby. Maybe it’s his background in the UK. Maybe it’s the fact that his hometown team Bristol City F.C. haven’t played in the top tier league since Tim was born. However, he’s a solid man on Veo’s team and brings experience from soccer in Australia, Canada and Sweden.
Philip Payberg, Sales Manager
Philip is the newest signing to the Veo team who’s going to Baltimore. He has a background in elite soccer in Denmark. His tireless style on the pitch and in the office has brought him a place on the team.
Christian Jönsson, Sales Director
Christian is in charge of all sales in Veo. His own goalkeeping career brought him to the youth national team of Denmark, but that’s a few years ago now. We have retrained him into a creative playmaker who can always find a solution to the situation he’s in.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at Booth 1049!
