What does a typical day at work look like to you?

My days consist of client meetings, internal meetings, and workshops! There are always other exciting things happening in addition to that – there can be different challenges with customer cases, or other work in the committees I engage in. I’m a chairman of the board of Cegal Humanity and a member of the Social Affairs committee. Other than that, I work with Energyworld, TechAid and London Business Forum – a customer event we’re planning in London. I like to organize, and often coordinate social events both internally and externally.

What technologies do you work with?

GeoCloud and cloud services that make data available to customers through our service. Now, there's a lot of focus on Azure and our new solution for GeoCloud HPC on Azure

What drives you at work and in your role, what do you enjoy?

Constantly learning new things and developing is an important driver for me in my everyday life. I like to learn through experience, and I learn a lot of new things from each client case I’m working on. I´m often out of my comfort zone, but that´s something I enjoy. 

I love the people and working with technology!

What’s the best part of working in Cegal?

The people I work with and being part of the journey and development of technology. There are constantly changes in the tech industry. The journey from in-house, manual and on-prem, to cloud and digitization shows that we are constantly finding smarter ways to work. 

Stavanger is hosting Energyworld on March 17th – could you tell us about Cegal’s attendance here?

Cegal has attended Energyworld for 11 years and has been a gold partner since 2012. We are proud to present our stand as Cegal and meet our clients together. At Energyworld we meet existing customers, but we also create new relations. The customer case we’re presenting has not been announced yet, but I can promise that it will be great! We look forward to it!

Which app do you use the most, and why?

I’m a creature of habits, so VG, Aftenbladet and Yr are likely up there.  

What’s your favorite podcast, and why?

"Lørdagsrådet" – It has it all. It’s funny and easy to listen to!

What do you prefer?

Android or iPhone?

iTunes or Spotify?

Streaming or linear TV?

Call or SMS?

Emoji or text?

Snapchat or Instagram?



Both, I’m a bit old-fashioned, so I still like linear TV

I love talking, so I usually call

I always add an emoji 🙂


Is there anything else we should know about you?

I have three boys at home, aged 10, 12 and 16, so they keep me busy. Some would probably call me a classic "soccer mom". I’m always on the sideline. My boys still believe the story of how I was a great soccer player in my younger days ;-) The soccer cleats are replaced with skis as soon as the first snow arrives. Other than that, I lead a social and active life. Great food and wine have become a passion of mine over the years. I generally love all kinds of food, but Italian food is probably my favorite along with a good Pinot Noir. You can never go wrong with that! 🙂
