The Team

Headshot of Allen Boening
Co-Founder & CEO
Allen Boening

Allen has over a decade of experience in technology and has spent most of his time in B2B sales roles.

"I wanted to build Swapdesk to solve my own problem: Since I could work remotely, I wanted to travel more, but I didn't wanna pay rent in 2 cities. I also wasn't prepared to go fully digital nomad. My passion for solving this for millions like me lies in my belief that we all want freedom. Swapdesk can play a key role in making this a reality."

Before Swapdesk, Allen was a Senior Account Executive at Salesforce and was responsible for building partnerships & business transformations in the healthcare industry in Australia, and the Retail industry in Denmark. He holds a Bachelor of Law & Business from Toronto Metropolitan University.

Based in Denmark, Allen loves travelling around Europe; squash, yoga and foraging for mushrooms.
