Stokke (pictured) joins Confirmit from global engineering and construction company Kvaerner, where he was  vice-president, M&A and business development, for five years. Prior to Kvaernar, he spent two years in strategy and business development at Ringnes, Norway’s largest brewer and part of the Carlsberg Group.

Stokke said: “During my varying roles, the multitude of business challenges I’ve faced are often rooted in, or can be solved by, technology. I wanted to move closer to the actual delivery of IT solutions, rather than remaining on the periphery as is usually the case in consulting roles and in diverse, globally spread organisations.”
