I like the idea of being a trusted advisor that helps clients through different phases and cycles.”

Jon Steen, Managing Partner, AWN: “Since we set up the business two years ago we have been working hard to recruit an advisor with experience as a senior executive. In my opinion, if we want to be successful at executive search, it’s vitally important that we have experience as senior executives ourselves. Svein-Thore is the perfect fit, and he also brings additional experience from business sectors that we have been missing up to now. With Svein-Thore on board we will be in a much better position to reach our target as the most comprehensive executive search and selection company and the status of trusted advisor for our clients.”
