Kaae has over 20 years of technology sales leadership experience, 10 of which were at Motorola Solutions. He has a strong track record of driving successful business strategies and fostering long-lasting customer relations in the IT industry.

“I’m excited to continue expanding our sales business in Europe and strengthening our role as a true provider of mission-critical, end-to-end solutions,'' said Kaae. “With more than 90 years of pioneering ground-breaking communication solutions, Motorola Solutions is uniquely positioned in the market. Our comprehensive, global expertise enables us to help our customers tackle the increasing requirements for efficient and reliable mission-critical communications and operations.”

Kaae is based in Denmark, where the company has worked with Danish blue light organisations and commercial customers for 50 years. Motorola Solutions in Denmark was one of the first initiators of the TETRA standard, and it was heavily involved in the development of the standard used by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

Motorola Solutions has provided Denmark’s nationwide TETRA radio system SINE (SIkkerhedsNEttet) for more than 10 years. The network guarantees highly reliable communication for police, rescue services and parts of the defence force through a dedicated, highly resilient and secure network.
