Hård is responsible for developing Torqeedo’s international service and aftermarket sales and support strategy. In addition, his team develops tools, processes, and standards to ensure that Torqeedo customers have the best owner experience possible, whether in-house or with our service partners around the world.

Our ultimate goal is to make Torqeedo products easy to own and offer an industry-leading user experience,” Hård concluded. “And we will do so.”
