Strengthening the Board for exciting challenges ahead

Addovation, the long-term ERP partner, strengthens the Board by appointing two non-executive, external forces to guide the company through exciting challenges ahead.

Keeping the company mission front and center

Since the company was founded in 2008, Addovation has grown substantially had a turnover in 2021 exceeding 170MNOK and is now employing 160 employees across Norway, Sweden, Finland and Sri Lanka. To help guide the company in the right direction, professional board member Frode Haugli has been appointed as Chairman of the Board. Frode has a broad background from several leading roles in the Nordic IT business. Frode has great experience with board management and is currently involved in multiple companies within different industries.

Furthermore, Glenn Veiby, CEO at the Raise Group, has been appointed as a new board member, replacing Kenneth Smith. Glenn has a strong ability to combine conceptual and structured thinking with practical business matters and will be very valuable for the company. 

“We feel confident that Frode and Glenn will be great assets to our company as we advance. Their experience and business insights will help guide us in the right strategic direction, ensuring that we are an attractive employer and ultimately providing the best possible customer value,” says Addovation’s CEO Joakim Hugosson.

Working together for excellent customer value

Frode has a broad background in several leading roles in the business world. According to himself, he is no visionary – however, he is a firm believer in setting a direction for the company, backing it up with a clear strategy and being excellent in the execution phase.

“One thing that fascinates me about Addovation is the level of ambition and professionalism throughout the organization. I feel that I can encourage them to stay true to their strategic core and values. It will be important for them to grow steadily, make sure that they offer high-quality solutions and services to customers, and stay an attractive employer. It’s simple, really – happy employees will stay in the organization, learn, develop and deliver great services!”

Per Inge Sævareid, Founder and COO at Addovation will be working closely with the new board members.

“I am excited to welcome both Frode and Glenn to the Board. It is an important step on our growth journey. To follow up on Frode’s statement on happy employees and customers, this is in line with our company values about working together, being innovative and passionate! Without a doubt, a great match” Per Inge Sævareid, COO at Addovation.
