Owner, Founder & CEO, Heidi Kaas-Pedersen
Heidi founded Quatre in 2007 and has managed the company as CEO since. Heidi, who graduated from DTU (Technical Univesity of Denmark) in 1993, has for many years had a solid career as a process specialist and project manager in various parts of Novo Nordisk. She has been a pioneer in the development of new production methods. She broke with old habits at the company, and she convinced the biggest critics that new production methods were possible and profitable.
Subsequently Heidi was headhunted to NNE, where she worked as process designer and project manager in the establishment of pharmaceutical production. The last years in NNE Heidi was expatriated to France, partly as a project manager and partly as head of the IT/Automation department in NNE's French subsidiary. After her return to Denmark, Heidi was employed by A.P. Moller Maersk, where Heidi worked in the 'Process Excellence' department with the analysis and optimization of processes in parallel with being certified as Six Sigma Black Belt®.
Heidi decided in 2007 to found her own company. A company that should have focus on process improvement, and project management, and in particular based on the concept Thinking Process ™. Heidi is a certified teacher of Edward de Bono's: Six Thinking Hats® and Six Value Medals®.
