In addition, Karlsen has also served as COO of the maritime tech company Star Information Systems AS, as well as holding the same position with Ecowat AS and Sales and Marketing Director with Sensorlink.

Karlsen comments: “I believe Klaveness Digital has a unique offering that makes a real impact on the shipping and logistics industry. Great technology and a skilled team, combined with Klaveness’ maritime heritage and industry knowledge is a formula I really believe in.

I hope that my experience from taking a SaaS company on a similar journey will add good value to the company. I am looking forward to being a part of the team and the exciting opportunities that lies ahead.”
