While my role as Managing Partner is varied, I enjoy everything from being part of the deal teams to driving performance and innovation in our portfolio. Additionally, telling the Summa story to our investors and others, about how Summa is creating value through our strategy of investing to solve global challenges.
The world is facing significant challenges and my choice was to be part of the solution. While establishing the Summa Fund together with the Summa Foundation in 2016 is my main commitment to this, I also find inspiration in the projects we have in Africa as well as closer to home, helping to improve the lives of the disadvantaged.
While I am responsible for Via Summa and hence involved in our follow up of all of our portfolio companies, I mostly focus on investments within our Resource Efficiency theme.
I am grateful to my family and the people supporting me on my journey; from my officer education at the Norwegian Defense School of Intelligence and Security, to getting my Bachelor from Wharton; attaining my MBA at Harvard, to then putting theory into practice at McKinsey and as the CEO of a technology company, before being part of the team building Altor Equity Partners.
