Norway’s lottery operator Norsk Tipping has strengthened its senior management team with appointments of Tina Rødahl and Vegar Strand.

Rødahl is employed as director of communications and public relations, and Vegar Strand is the new director of strategy and analysis.

CEO Tonje Sagstuen is pleased to have landed these appointments. These are highly experienced managers with documented results in areas that are central to Norsk Tipping. We are looking forward to getting them in place, says Sagstuen.

Tina Rødahl comes from the consulting company Peer Group, where she is founder and partner. She has a long track record from management positions, including through AdColony’s partner agreement with LinkedIn, where she was first responsible for Norway and later Scandinavia and Turkey. She also has experience from TV2 and Dagsavisen, as well as board positions. She has a master’s degree in International Business from Leeds Metropolitan University. Rødahl is originally from Hamar, and takes up the position on 1 May.

I am looking forward to being part of shaping a solid and exciting brand together with a highly skilled department, and contributing to Norsk Tipping being able to offer a responsible and attractive gaming offer. It’s something I really see value in, says Rødahl.

Vegar Strand, together with three others, runs the consulting company Oplandske, which offers services in business development, project management, change processes and finance. He has previously been finance and strategy director for Hoff SA, managing director. in the newspaper Gudbrandsdølen Dagningen, finance director for the Youth Olympics in Lillehammer, and adviser at PWC’s Oslo office. In addition, there are a number of positions as board member and chairman.

Strand has a master’s degree in economics and administration from the Norwegian School of Business and Economics in Bergen, and an extension in computer science at NTNU. He is originally from Gjøvik, and will take up the position after the summer.

Norsk Tipping is a very exciting technology company, which I am looking forward to being part of and developing further. In addition, it makes sense to be part of a company that gives great value back to society, and actively contributes to supporting a large breadth of voluntary Norway, says Strand.

With this, the new top management group in Norsk Tipping is complete. A long-planned reorganization has, together with the departure of former managing director. Thor Gjermund Eriksen and marketing director Thorbjørn Unneberg, led to the top management being almost completely renewed.

We have employed both external and internal candidates, and now get an optimal mix of continuity and fresh perspectives, says Tonje Sagstuen.
