The Team

Martin Eriksson

Martin Eriksson started his career as a web designer and developer, realised he didn’t have enough talent at either but did have a real knack for translating it all for the business people. After several start ups in his native Stockholm, he moved to London in 2000 and has led product teams at Monster, the Financial Times, Huddle, and Covestor. He founded ProductTank and co-founded Mind the Product, and now works as a Chief Product Officer at large while working on Mind the Product full time and writing Product Leadership: How Top Product Leaders Launch Great Products and Build Successful Teams (O’Reilly, 2017)
