Meet our new finance expert at Marketer, who brings years of experience from Deloitte and Citycon, along with a robust educational background from the Norwegian School of Economics. His transition to Marketer was fueled by a desire for a fresh challenge and a fast-paced environment. Read our latest article to learn more about Ole Kristian and how his first couple of months at Marketer has been.

Tell us a bit about your background!

I moved to Oslo in 2015, after completing my Master’s degree in Finance at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). My first job was in Deloitte, where I worked for 5 years. The first three as an auditor, and the last two as a consultant. I also got my Master’s degree in Audit and Accounting from NHH during those years.

After that I spent four years in the Nordic Shopping Center company Citycon, where I started as Head of Finance in the Norwegian finance team, before being promoted to the position of Senior Manager Corporate Finance in the Nordic Finance and Strategy Team, working on a group level in Citycon.

Why did you want to join the Marketer team?

My previous experiences have mainly been working in, and with, big established companies. That has been a great experience, but when I learned about this opportunity, I got really triggered by the possibility to work at a scale up like Marketer. It is a new challenge, and way of thinking, for me. On top of that, after meeting the people I would work with, it was a done deal on my part.

How has the onboarding period been?

It has been really fun and very hectic, and I’ve hit the ground running. I came right into the auditing process and had to quickly get up to speed in the company’s processes and numbers. As challenging as that has been, it’s been a great crash course in how the company is tied together.

To make it even more hectic, I had my firstborn child arriving two weeks after joining the company, so there hasn’t been much time to lean back. But it has been a really enjoyable experience altogether.

Name three items you would bring with you on a deserted island?

My guitar is probably the most important. It is my number one go-to when I need to disconnect and let my mind fly away and rest. On second thought, do I really need more disconnecting on a deserted island?

A football would probably be second. If I cannot watch football on TV, I can try to make my own fun with it.

And lastly, a swiss army knife so I can MacGyver myself away from the island!
