An excerpt of CEO Rolv Erik Ryssdal’s statement in the Annual Report:
Building for Digital growth
By Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO
Moving forward, we will strengthen Schibsted’s position as a global, user-centric company made up of strong national digital ecosystems, centred on data linked to user identity. We will pursue our strategic goals with full force:
• Be a global leader in classifieds
• Build world-class digital media houses
• Create smart new services for everyday living
We have a strong foundation to build on. Our culture is defined by highly motivated people who are committed to building and creating something new. We have both disrupted and reinvented ourselves before; now we must do it again, only this time more fundamentally than ever before. With our leading positions, strong brands, and competent people, I am optimistic that we will succeed in reaching our goals.
