The only way to grow is up. That is why we are incredibly excited to call Petter Berge our new Chairman! A well-diversified professional with much to offer, we know there are only great things to come with Petter on board the SS New Normal.
Petter, a graduate of the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy, holds an economics degree from Stirling University, and an MBA from IESE in Barcelona. Although once an officer in the Royal Norwegian Navy, where he was operating missile torpedo boats across the North Atlantic, Petter eventually changed course and set sail for the financial industry. Thirty-five years later, he still remains.
Over these years, Petter has live and worked across the globe. He has served as a director of corporate finance with Banque Paribas, Head of Asset Management with the DNB group, CEO of Enskilda Banken, chairman of the Norwegian Fund Management Association, and has been a member of the directorship of the European Fund and Asset Management Association (to name a few!). However, Petter’s personal life is just as rich as his professional one: he is a husband of one, father of four, and grandfather of two, in his now-home of Oslo, Norway.
Petter considers the financial world, investment world, and digital world as a single universe that is not complete unless all pieces are present. As the Chairman of New Normal Group, he is excited for the fun that comes with incubating and growing new-normal companies.
Welcome Petter - we are so glad to have you on board!
