- Our Team
We are delighted to announce that we have gained another star on the team! Welcome to Markus Svenberg, our new VP Marketing. Markus will have the main responsibility for all marketing activities, strengthening Marketer’s brand position and marketing strategies.
Getting to know Markus, his passion for marketing as well as making the people around him feel comfortable and motivated is highly noticeable. He has previously worked as Marketing Director at BMI Norway, one of Norway's largest suppliers of products for roofs and facades, where he gained valuable experience and built a strong idea and vision of what marketing should be in today’s digitalised world. Markus is now bringing this passion to Marketer, being a key driver in our vision to reimagine marketing by creating smart and connected experiences based on users' intentions and becoming a global leader in the real estate sector.
To start off, if you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?
On a sailboat in between countries with a good book.
What are the top 3 things that excite you about marketing?
- 1Branding - The power of a well-defined brand with a good purpose.
- 2How fast things are changing and the ability to adapt and outperform competition if you are curious and knowledgeable about the landscape.
- 3The way in which great and creative communication can set emotions in motion.
What would you say is your biggest accomplishment so far?
Becoming a Marketing Director in a +1 billion NOK company at the age of 23, and being announced as one of the top 10 marketing professionals in Norway back in 2020.
Are there any particular drivers that have gotten you to where you are today?
Oh, that's a tough one. I believe it is a combination of being given opportunities, trust, guidance as well as having an eager mind - always wanting to learn, develop and improve as a professional and a leader. I also strongly believe in the importance of collaboration and succeeding together as a team.
What drew you towards working at Marketer?
I would say it was the people, the industry and the fast-moving and fun culture you usually find in a rapidly growing startup, which I have experience with from earlier. I have also seen how digitalisation has created a lot of new opportunities in the real estate market, working for one of the world's biggest players in the building-materials industry. Hence, I started to pay attention to some of the promising proptech/contech companies, and in that research, I discovered Marketer. Looking at their massive growth from the sideline I had to take the chance when the VP position came up.
Markus has a very impressive background and is highly talented within many different areas of marketing. From what I have experienced so far he is a very empathic leader who only wants the best for his team and is dedicated to facilitating each individual team member’s growth. I am very excited to see what we can achieve together as a team going forward.

What is your goal for the marketing team?
My ambition is to build the best SaaS marketing team together with rising talents who dare to think new and believe that there is no limit to what we can accomplish, creating an efficiency of delivery that few have seen before. Through hard insight, outstanding customer understanding, high-quality content, and having fun while building great user experiences, we will help our customers to become champions in their respective spaces. My goal is that as a marketing professional there should be only one place you are looking for your next career development, and that should be with this rocket.
Tell us a fun fact about you.
I have always dreamt of being a Yacht designer.
