Petter Traaholt will continue in his position until end of February 2020.

– During his time with the company, Petter has, together with the management team, been instrumental in the ongoing transformation of the business. Over the past years, we have de-risked the company, restructured the business into a country-based organization, re-financed the company and launched our Operational Excellence strategy. Petter was also the driver of establishing and strengthening the Group’s internal control function as well as being a highly regarded leader and colleague.
