Appointed Board Members include Gøran Andreassen who joined Torvald Klaveness in April 2021 as Chief Strategic Investment Officer and brings more than 20 years of experience across private equity, investment banking and industry positions. Prior to Klaveness, he was Senior Partner in OMP Capital and Partner in HitecVision, where he served on the Board of multiple portfolio companies during his seven years with the firm.

Sten-Roger Karlsen has been the CEO of Ørn Software for the past four years of his 22 years working in software and technology. During Karlsen’s tenure, the company raised more than 250 NOKm from international investors for its IPO on the Euronet Growth Stock Exchange in March 2021 and has increased its Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) by more than 1100%. 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.”
