Mathias was born and raised in beautiful Skanderborg, Denmark in the Danish Lake District, to Indian and Swedish parents.

As the youngest of three children, he is an exceptionally outgoing and energetic character that wanted to pursue an international career early on. He joined Maersk’s International Shipping Education programme (MISE), and after completing his degree-level studies there, worked in various managerial positions for Maersk in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, Moscow and Copenhagen.

In October 2007, Mathias was approached by Thomas Møller Jensen with the idea of co-founding Æsir as head of sales.
