COO & Deputy MD, Nordics, Geodis Wilson A/S
Allan has been part of Happy Bosses from the very beginning. Allan is deputy chairperson and a very active Happy Boss. He was part of the team behind the first Happy Bosses book “Natural born leader” (“Sorry but there is no way you can learn how to lead”) and book number 2, “Glade Chefer Elsker Mad” (“Happy Bosses love food”), co-written with Francis Cardenau, owner of Le Sommelier, Umami and MASH. This book looks at the topic “when only the best is good enough” and the dilemma: “I lead but make way…”

Karina joined Happy Bosses in 2013 and she is also part of the team behind the book “Glade Chefer brænder også fingrene”. Karina has previously worked Spar Nord Bank, Dansk Supermarked and as HR Director in Vestas. Today Karina is Chief Commercial Officer at Solitwork. She also gives lectures, member of the board in multiple companies, businessmentor and a member of VL-95.
– Happy Bosses is a unique network that exudes positive inspiration – and it’s good that it gets a little more feminine touch, says Karina.
Mikkel Fredsted Birn
managing partner, Birn & Partners ApS
Mikkel joined Happy Bosses in connection with the new book “Glade Chefer Elsker Mad”. Mikkel teamed up with Thomas Rode Andersen, manager and head chef at the restaurant “Kong Hans Kælder”. The topic is “Stone Age food on the beach” and the dilemma is: “Flexibility – planning or chaos”. Mikkel has an MBA, is chairman of one of the so-called VL-groups (management groups) and has integrated Happy Bosses into his daily life within no time, realising how fast an active membership of Happy Bosses leads to a unique network and sense of solidarity – and to good business opportunities.
Managing Director, Bravida A/S
Bent has been part of Happy Bosses from the start and he was a co-writer on the first Happy Bosses book: “Tag barske beslutninger med ro i maven” (“Make tough decisions with inner calmness”). Along with the photos taken for the book, this heading naturally turned into “Mr. Andersen, Bent Andersen”, member no. 007 at Happy Bosses! Bent has an MBA and is an active Happy Boss.
