[Oslo, 12th of August, 2019]
The Norwegian technology company BrandMaster is stepping up its international profile and opens new offices in the UK and Germany. This is a response to requests from international customers and partners. Further, a management change is made with the appointment of Karl Fredrik Lund as new CEO.
“The Board is very grateful to the former CEO Gunnar Larsen for his excellent efforts over the past eight years. BrandMaster has in many ways been re-created under his leadership, and we as directors and shareholders are very pleased that Gunnar continues as COO in a coordinating role for the Nordic region as well as joining the Board as a non-exec Director”, says chairman Erik Langaker.
Following the acquisition of the Swedish company Resolut Marketing Systems AB earlier this year, Brandmaster strengthened its position as a leading player in cloud-based solutions for international brand management. BrandMaster is now also present in the US market. In addition, BrandMaster now opens offices in London and Stuttgart in order to meet demand from a growing international customer base.
“We find that BrandMaster’s product portfolio is well positioned compared to similar companies in Europe, and that demand outside Scandinavia is increasing significantly. A natural consequence of this is to be present in markets where our new customers are”, says Langaker.
Karl Fredrik Lund becomes new CEO
