Knut Erling Norén - New managing director of Multiconsult UK

New Managing Director of Multiconsult UK

Knut Erling Norén has been appointed new managing director of Multiconsult UK, effective from 1 September 2015. He succeeds Peter Illes.

7. August 2015

Norén leaves his position as VP Hydropower international operations in Norconsult. He has extensive experience in international hydropower, both in marketing, sales and implementation of projects. Norén holds a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from NTNU (Norwegian University of Science Technology) and Bachelor in Business Administration and an MBA program in Energy Economics and Business Administration from BI (Norwegian Business School).

Knut Erling Norén was appointed after a thorough process and in competition with many exciting candidates who were in the process.
– We strongly believe that Knut will help ensure that Multiconsult UK continues the positive trend the company has had in recent years and also bring a new dimension to cooperation between “mother and daughter” in renewable energy, says Tom Ødegaard, Chairman of Multiconsult UK.

Well integrated into Multiconsult ASA

When Norén later this fall moves to Kent in England, he will meet an environment that has gradually become an integrated part of Multiconsult ASA. The outgoing CEO, Peter Illes, has much of the credit for this.

– I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter for the brilliant effort he has invested in integrating the British team into Multiconsult, which at times has been very challenging and time consuming. Peter will assist Knut actively in the initial phase and will in the near future have a position as external advisor, says Ødegaard
