Top mobile enterprise analyst leaves IDC

Lars Vestergaard is leaving IDC.

In January, he takes up a new role at Mobilethink as MD for a new business area, Mobilethink Analytics. Based in Denmark, Lars will be selling analytics solutions to mobile operators around the globe.

It’s an exciting challenge for the man who, in his decade with IDC, has built up a reputation for being one of the top analysts covering enterprise mobility in Europe. As Lars himself says: “After more than 11 years, it is time to try something new.”

While his appointment is a great result for Mobilethink, Lars' departure is a loss to the European analyst community.

We’re interested to find out more about how IDC will replace him. In the past, the company has proven adept at attracting and retaining experienced, knowledgeable analysts (think Chris Lewis, Eric Owen, John Delaney, Chris Barnard…)

In the meantime, Lars' responsibilities will be covered by colleagues Dan Bieler and Rosie Seechi.
