Previously, Bjarte has worked as a sales division manager for Norwegian industrial customers in a large international company where some of the customers have also been customers in the transport sector. He has also worked with business development at Nordic customers with collaboration with partners from several European countries. The fact that he worked in Germany a period for a former Norwegian employer, and that he also worked in an international German group means that he has good experience working with European customers and suppliers.

With his background, Bjarte is therefore good at seeing connections between technical and mercantile opportunities as well as ensuring that the projects he works in progress.
