Mr Norling brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the technology, media and telecom (TMT) sector. He has previously held positions as CEO of Total Access Communications Thailand, CEO of Digi Telecommunications Malaysia and CEO of Telenor Sweden.

Tom Dinkelspiel, Chairman of the Board of Nordnet , commented:

“Nordnet has during the last year made a number of successful product launches, launched a new app and website, and acquired the Norwegian bank Netfonds. We have had a high pace in the business, but have a lot left to do. Lars-Åke has the qualities required to take us to the next phase, where we will put even more emphasis on the digital user experience”.

“I see Nordnet as one of the strongest brands in the Nordic countries in savings and investments, and a real challenger to the traditional banks and pension companies. I am very honored to have been given the task of leading Nordnet’s development further, and look forward to getting to know all employees and quickly creating a clear picture of what is important to our customers”, said Lars-Åke Norling.
