Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am from Porsgrunn in Norway, two hours south of Oslo, but have lived between London and Oslo for 20 years. My wife is British, and we have three children.
What is your background in?
I have a finance and economics background from studies at the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen and equity research roles both in Oslo and London. I was head of investor relations for a global publication paper producer for several years, worked as CFO for an open-source CMS company and have also been an independent management consultant.
What are the main activities you focus on at LINK?
I recently joined and have been reading up on the company and the industry while contributing to the quarterly presentation and report. This week we are on a virtual roadshow, meeting investors through Microsoft Teams for Q&A. Onwards, my day-to-day will involve responding to investors and financial analysts’ requests. I will also be reviewing LINK’s future ESG policy on how to best comply with and benefit from new standards.

We are listed publicly under the ticker LINK.
How do you work with investors to increase their interest in LINK?
By being available and helping investors to understand LINK’s strategy and equity story in the context of the rapidly evolving CPaaS market.
Still unsure what CPaaS means? Here’s what you need to know.
What do our shareholders expect from LINK over the next few years?
Shareholders like growth, especially organic growth, so our delivery on the go-to-market strategy is crucial. They also like growth through accretive acquisitions, which is the track-record of LINK. Long-term shareholders or investors want what we want, for LINK to become a top global CPaaS player.
