Pleo Hero of the Month: Ludvig Olsson, Trickle

Ludvig Olsson is a big fan of agile marketing. He’s CEO of content distribution agency Trickle, who help their clients cut through the noise and stay relevant online. We had a talk with Ludvig to hear how Pleo helps them keep track of their finances and create a more social workplace.

June was a month where we balanced Design and Engineering Efficiency weeks with (remote-friendly) Team Camp fun to boost the collective Pleo spirit.

We’re halfway through a year that’s presented huge and unexpected challenges for a lot of businesses. That probably includes you – it definitely includes us.

The next few months will see some really exciting Pleo features and updates coming your way. We’re feeling excited and optimistic for the rest of 2020. Hopefully you are too!
