Country manager / Sales manager ready for new challenges
I have proven skills in creating value both for customers, colleagues and my employees. Recent years I have built up new businesses and markets across the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian borders. I have a professional, acknowledging, analytical and structured approach to problem solving and management. I thrive when mentoring, coaching and motivating colleagues and employees. I am motivated by my employees’ development and the fact that I am able to give my employees a motivating and interesting workplace. (Lived in Oslo since 2013).

I decided to resign as my position was changed to country manager in Denmark and Norway, which would include traveling at least 50% of the time.
2013 - 2014
Responsible for the Danish department of Hurtigruten, with main focus on sales and building up the largest travel agents in Denmark. During my time there, I succeeded in signing the 3 largest and most important agents in Denmark and helped the largest customer grow in sales by almost 50 %. Hurtigrugen is a 2400km journey up and down the Norwegian coastline, Hurtigruten has been called the world’s most beautiful sea journey by the National Geographic. Unfortunately, traveling to Denmark ended up taking 60% of my work hours, and thus I decided to resign to have more time in Norway with my family.
Sales Manager Denmark and Norway
2012 - 2013
Sales manager for Fashion finder, an application that directs customers to the nearest fashion retailer. I was responsible for sales and building up main customers in Denmark and Norway, and for hiring, training, coaching and daily management of 5 salesmen in Copenhagen. We went from 120 stores to over 200 and from 3000 to 7500 users. I took this job as it offered the opportunity to move to Oslo and build up an office there. Due to lack of main investors they decided to stop the plans of expanding further in Europe.
