Ole Gjerde

Chief Operating Officer

Ole’s the glue that holds everything together for True|IT so the rest of us can focus on clients.

Ole grew up in Aalesund, Norway, where he worked in his parents’ grocery store and learned a great deal about business from the ground up. He’s a Norwegian through and through, which for our company and our clients is a good thing. His honesty, modesty and sincerity are all great traits for a chief operating officer, and to them you can add calmness and a highly logical mind.

Ole was the COO of another information technology start-up prior to becoming one of four True|IT co-founders in 2011. Overall, he has nearly 20 years of experience in the IT industry.

Ole earned his Bachelor of Arts in computer science at North Dakota State University in Fargo in 2003. He and his wife, Katie, have two kids.
