With over a million customers in 100 countries worldwide, Croatian IT company Span is already living up to its name,but it has plans to grow bigger.
“We build and support complex IT solutions for our clients,” explains Nikola Dujmović, who co-founded the company in 1993 and is the current president and CEO. “Our plan is to grow even further and become sig-nificant beyond our borders.”
It’s this ambitious drive and commitment to quality that’s transformed the company from a small retail store in Zagreb to a worldwide business with over 300 employees and customers on all five continents.
“Our industry is changing all other industries and at the same time it is changing itself”
For Nikola, the recipe for success is simple; it’s about a combination of caring and innovating: “We care for our clients and we take care of our people,” he says. “And we have a passion for technology; we innovate and we are focused on success.”
This passion for technology helped Span become Croatia’s first Microsoft Certified Solution Provider – just three years after opening its doors – and Croatia’s first Microsoft Certified Gold Partner a few years later, in 2001.
“Today, we are proud of our 14 Microsoft competencies, of which 12 are Gold,” adds Nikola. “And we’re very proud to have won the Croatia Microsoft Partner of the Year Award in 2016.”
Looking forward, the company is focused on delivering “more for less” and keeping one step ahead in what Nikola describes as an increasingly dynamic industry.

“Our industry is changing all other industries and at the same time it is changing itself,” says the CEO, who would also like to see more support for entrepreneurs, as well as less bureaucracy and regulation.
“Technology, digitalisation and artificial intelligence will change the world. We strongly believe that the digital world will enable people to be more productive, better informed and to enjoy life more than ever before.”
