Chief Financial Officer Rune Gjessing leaves Norske Skog

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Rune Gjessing has been employed by Norske Skog since 2002, and has been a member of the corporate management since 2007. He has been responsible for strategy, investor relations and for the business units outside Europe.

I have worked with major change processes and many complex transactions. Norske Skog is now more focused around its business systems, and therefore, time is now ripe to explore other challenges after many years in the same company, says Rune Gjessing.

- Gjessing has extensive knowledge of the industry and the company. His broad experience in a number of key tasks within the group over the last 10 years has been vital for the group's work on adaptation and innovation. I want to thank Rune for his efforts in a number of senior positions in the company, and at the same time wish him the best with new tasks, says CEO Sven Ombudstvedt.

Efforts to find his successor are underway. CEO Sven Ombudstvedt will in addition serve as CFO until a replacement is found.
