At a Board Meeting in May, we introduced our new Board Members. We decided that we wanted to have some very smart people join us, to strengthen decision making and to help guide the Group to the next level. People who will look from the outside in. We are pleased to welcome:
Nora Kerpolla, who is well known to the Creditinfo family, having been involved with us as a shareholder since 2010. She has had a successful career in private equity. Particularly, she has had success in relation to many information and technology companies. She was the Chairman of the Finnish Credit Bureau and in just a short period of time, she helped see the value of that company increase by more than 250%. Find Nora on LinkedIn.
Jakob Sigurdsson, has successfully managed strategic and operational turn-arounds and ran private and listed businesses with US$350 million to $1 billion in turnover. He has also been the Captain of the Icelandic National Handball team. Additionally, he played for the national Handball team in 3 different Olympics too – 1984 in LA, USA, 1988 in Seoul, Korea and also 1992 in Barcelona, Spain. Handball was the favourite sport of the country during these times (Iceland sucked at football in those days!). Find Jakob on LinkedIn.
