Peter Søndergaard joins 2021.AI as new Chairman of the Board

We are so excited to have Peter Søndergaard teaming up with the world’s renowned Machine Learning expert, Danny Lange, on our board in 2021.AI.


2021.AI is proud to announce Peter Søndergaard as the new Chairman of the Board. For more than 30 years, Peter has been guiding leading companies globally in technology adoption and transformation, embracing the latest technological advances. As one of the world’s leading technology experts, Peter is leading Gartner’s 2,500 research analysts and advisors as Executive Vice President and member of Gartner’s operating committee.

AI and Machine Learning – the future of business

“All companies need to transition into the world of AI and machine learning. They should evaluate and define how this will impact their future” says Peter Søndergaard. “In this journey, it is fundamental to recognize where you are in (AI) maturity and be aware that doing everything yourself can be difficult. If not impossible.”

“Most companies will have to understand how to leverage experience and technology from those who went before them. Herein, partners are a great way to rapidly engage with AI and integrate it into what they do in their organization. 2021.AI is such a partner. That is why I look forward to joining a company which can make a clear and measurable difference for others, and is able to move the needle when it comes to creating value through AI,” says Peter Søndergaard.

So, based on his firsthand experience from Gartner, the leading research and advisory company within technology transitions, Peter states:

“AI could be the most important transition yet. What organizations that have reached the deployment stage of AI learn, need is the ability to manage their algorithms. Not only from the perspective of the algorithms being a critical asset for the business but also for regulatory purposes.”

Peter Søndergaard – 2021.AI’s investor

In addition to taking the role as chairman of the board, Peter Søndergaard also joins 2021.AI as an investor.

He believes it will monumentally strengthen the company in its rapid growth, strategy direction, and, most importantly, in support and expertise proposed to its clients on their AI journey and transformation, which Peter can offer in his position as one of the world’s technology leaders:

“Being a rapidly growing company, it is important for our increasing number of customers and partners worldwide, that we are able to advise even the largest companies in the world on their AI journey and transformation. In this, Peter is an invaluable asset for both us and our clients with his unparalleled insights into their business and technology challenges. With AI evolving as quickly as it does, it is paramount that we continue to serve our clients combining AI technology and expertise for successful AI adoption and implementation. I am so excited to have Peter Søndergaard teaming up with the world’s renowned Machine Learning expert, Danny Lange, on our board and as shareholders in 2021.AI” finishes Munck.
