We are thrilled to announce that as of January 1st 2022, Christer Husstøl has taken on the role as our new Chief Executive Officer. We would also like to thank our former CEO, Kjetil Moløkken-Østvold, for the great work he has done for the company in the last five years. Moløkken-Østvold will continue in the company in the role as Vice President and will be responsible for partners, key customers and major projects.
For the last two years, Christer Husstøl has served as Vice President of Business Development in Upwave, and has done a magnificent job improving our sales generation, leading our sales team, and building strong relationships with existing and potential customers, partners and stakeholders. He has had a crucial role in rigging Upwave for enterprise sales and increasing our market share. We are excited to have him leading our team in the next phase – launching our new app suite and scaling globally.
“Two years ago I joined the Upwave team. During that time, I proudly witnessed our transition to a multifaceted company. It began with a game-changer, Upwave Project. Today, we are on the cusp of releasing a suite of products by the second quarter of this year. Our new apps maximize workflow management. They collect and automate data. And they are all fully integrated into the Upwave platform. Our company is positioned to meet the needs of most modern organizations and to help those organizations modernize. It is a distinct privilege to continue working with Kjetil Moløkken-Østvold, as well as the remarkable Upwave team. This is a pivotal time for all of us at Upwave.”, says CEO Christer Husstøl.
