Man of the Month - 2023

'You always find an exciting story behind the exterior' - Ulrik Storm

December
Simon Bromark

'I like to challenge myself'

When Simon Bromark and his wife Pernille walk down the pedestrian street, they always meet people they know.
They have been restaurant owners in the city for a number of years, the past six years with Olivia Brasserie, and are also active in various business networks.
Simon enjoys the role of the good host and enjoys being able to challenge himself - and not least that he can go to work dressed casually.

November
Brian Hartmann-Weiergang

'It is important for me to be able to make a difference'

When interviewing a man like Brian, it can be difficult to find the angle on the story. The focal point. Because even though Brian is only 59, he has lived a life like very few. Had
a career that has taken many turns and many different directions.
He is the father of three children and became a father for the first time at a later age than most, because he and his wife should not actually be able to have children.

We have all started our 'Man of the Month' with 'Tell us about yourself'. We did that this time too, but the story was so long that it would require almost a book.
A common denominator in the story of Brian, however, is 'people'. Working with people and the relationship
to humans. That is why we start there. In man.

October
Morten Nass

"Wine binds people together"

We meet Morten Nass the day before the trip to France. Here he will go with his wine club and taste good wine.

And even if it's just pure pleasure, Morten is always a bit at work when the wine comes on the table. Wine is Morten's great passion - a passion he has made his livelihood as the owner of Vinens Verden.

September
Henrik Nielsen

'Many people think it's a cakewalk, but you have to be aware of what you're getting into'

When we meet Henrik, he has just completed a quarter of an Ironman, and on the day of the interview he can actually celebrate his ten-year wedding anniversary with his wife, Katrine – a relationship that started the hard way with four years of long distance.

Today, Henrik is self-employed with his own forwarding company.

August
Torben Rafn

"Now it's more about what I can do for others"

According to Torben Rafn, financial security is one of the most important things for us humans - and that is why he has chosen to devote his career to working with finance.
We met Torben for a chat about finance, career, management - and about being halfway through life.

July
Rasmus Ullehus Iversen

'People probably know me as a bit of a clown'

Rasmus Ullehus is a bit of a multi-artist. He can write musician, bricklayer, building designer, pub owner, tartlet festival man and family man on his CV.
And most people will probably be a little breathless when they see what Rasmus fills his everyday life with.

June
Thomas Kristensen

Thomas Kristensen is probably one of the most well-known faces from the TV world - especially if you
are you interested in sports. We caught Thomas on the phone in the Lost & Found queue at the airport, just
the country from Budapest, where he has covered the Europa League final.

Meet the man behind the well-known voice in the world of sports.

May
Michael Rune

How far would you go to impress your first love?

In Michael's case, really far. In fact, so far that it has paved the way for Michael to have stood on some of the biggest stages, with some of the biggest names in the music industry.

It all sounds like a dream, but we all know the good dreams that are replaced by one's worst nightmares. The nightmare that no human being should have to go through became a reality for Michael back in 2017.

April
Lasse Koch

Meet April's 'Man of The Month, Lasse Koch.
Lasse lives daily in Aarhus with his family, and together with his brother Michael runs the restaurants 'Det Glade Vanvid'.

Is Lasse a good boss, how dare you open 3 more restaurants during the shutdown in Denmark, and do you want to stand in a kitchen after four in the evening?

March
Jeppe Tverskov

Meet March's 'Man of The Month', Jeppe Tverskov.
Although Jeppe's football career only started at a 'late' age, he is today the captain of Odense Boldklub. Off the pitch, Jeppe is a new family man and boyfriend.

But what will happen when the contract with OB expires this summer? How did the football career start and what is it like to be a captain and a role model?

February
Søren Smedegaard White

Meet Søren Smedegaard Hvid who is February's 'Man of The Month'. When you meet Søren, at first glance you will think of a well-dressed businessman, but behind the exterior hides a family man, husband, newly hatched football fanatic and, not least, a heart that burns for entrepreneurship.

On a daily basis, Søren is a chartered accountant and partner in EY and director of EY Entrepreneur of The Year , Denmark.

January
Mads Elholm

Meet Mads Elholm, who is the year's first 'Man of The Month'. As a very young man, Mads had a huge talent in tennis, but in his late teenage years he lost the spirit and interest.
"When you are 15-16 years old, there are probably many talents that are lost - and I am one of them. It was my mother who drove me around to tournaments and there was a lack of a structured plan for what was going to happen. It is necessary to have a plan and to talk if you do not want to lose the young people at the age when it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel if you do not break through immediately. I simply lost interest and chose the friends. But I had the talent to push it far”.

Today, the Odense boy with a capital O can call himself a national team player on the Danish padel national team.
