Handheld CEO Jerker Hellström on world tour

4/28/2016 : news

Handheld CEO Jerker Hellstrom embarked on a world tour in Q1 2016 that would do a rock band proud, spending time with customers and partners in the United States, Australia, Africa and Europe.

Along the way his stops have included partners serving markets as varied as logistics and warehousing, utilities and field service, transportation and fleet management, supply chain and retail, mining, railway maintenance, public safety and environmental solutions.

While he has been graciously received throughout the world, the Australia visit brought an up-close encounter with a giant Huntsman spider that he and Handheld Europe/APAC Managing Director Carsten Billeschou’ll will never forget. While in Sydney rush hour traffic, they were surprised by a massive Huntsman spider climbing on the car ceiling. Next time you see them, be sure to get the whole story which includes our CEO flinging himself out the car door, friendly Aussies coming to their aid, and a new "for sale" sign in this car's window.

{Note: this is a borrowed and edited image of the spider they saw. The actual spider was apparantly much larger and they were both too busy screaming and jumping on the car hood to snap a decent picture.}
