The Posten Norge group has appointed Thomas Støkken as the executive director of Posten’s e-commerce and logistics division.
Before he took office as director on August 1, Støkken had several management roles in Posten from 2004-2010, most recently as director of Bring Mail. Støkken had also been the managing director of Løvenskiold Handel (Maxbo) and, before that, he spent many years at Statoil/Circle K, as executive vice president of the Norway division and as director of strategy.
Støkken, said, “I am very impressed by the work that has been done in recent years within sustainability and technology development. Here Posten has really taken the lead and taken an important and relevant position. The task of leading Bring’s Nordic e-commerce and logistics operations is very exciting. It is a forward-looking, customer-oriented and skilled organization that has a strong starting point for success in a competitive market with rapid changes.”
Tone Wille, CEO of Posten Norge, said, “I am very pleased to have someone like Thomas join the group management. He can show strong results in his previous roles, where he has contributed to significant growth and improved profitability. He has broad commercial experience and will be a strong driving force in the work to further develop existing services and develop new concepts. At the same time, this is another example of talented people returning to the group after a few years out, which is gratifying.”
