Press release; Think Outside names Bjørnar Mykkeltvedt as new Chief Financial Officer
Bergen— 09/04/2019 — Within the last 18 months, Think Outside has accelerated from an initial lean, team organization aided by a minor regional research grant and external research staff at NORCE (RFF Forskningsrådet) to building a staff of 8 dedicated full-time staff and operating a large 12MNOK research grant.
Notable milestones in the past few months include securing pre-sales of its consumer prototype product, Sknow Ski, while simultaneously building our database and beginning on the UX design. In light of this growth and in preparation to scale further during the next winter season, the Management and Board have decided to strengthen the team by the hiring a Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
It is a pleasure to announce that Bjørnar Mykkeltvedt will join Think Outside as CFO. Bjørnar joins from his current senior position at ABB.

His financial leadership will be a key component in the Company’s continuous growth strategy.
Monica Vaksdal, CEO and Founder of Think Outside: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Bjørnar to the team. Not only does he match our needs for controller and finance skills, but he is also a very likable person. As an avid skier, and with a career background from the technology- and petroleum industry, he will fit right in with Think Outside. I am looking forward to working with Bjørnar in an exciting period ahead for the Company. “
Bjørnar Mykkeltvedt, incoming Think Outside CFO: “I first came across Think Outside when Q-meieriene was featuring Monica Vaksdal on milk cartoons last fall.
