New CEO in Schibsted Marketplaces Denmark

Vivi Højen, former COO of Schibsted Denmark, returns to Schibsted Marketplaces Denmark as CEO to lead the organisation towards new ways of working in Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces.

Vivi Højen has previously worked in eBay and Schibsted Denmark for three years where she has held various leading roles.  She has also been an important player in integrating DBA and Bilbasen, two leading marketplaces in Denmark, from eBay into Schibsted.

“I’m excited to be back in Schibsted again and although I’ve been away for five months, our proud household brands and the Schibsted passion for people, diversity and circular economy are very close to my heart. Being able to come back and lead the Danish organisation into its next chapter is a great honour and opportunity for me” Vivi explains.

Christian Printzell Halvorsen, EVP of Nordic Marketplaces, is very pleased about Vivi Højen’s return to Schibsted Denmark.

“As former COO of Schibsted Denmark, Vivi has great knowledge of the Danish organisation and business. Her experience, values, drive and passion for our brands and company make her a great fit for the next stage of leading the Danish organisation into new ways of working in Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces”, says Christian Printzell Halvorsen.

Schibsted has a wide range of market-leading business divisions in the Scandinavian market. Hence DBA, Bilbasen and Bilinfo are now in great company with Nordic marketplaces such as Blocket in Sweden, FINN in Norway and Tori.fi in Finland.

Schibsted is a family of digital brands with a strong Nordic position with close to 6,000 employees. Millions of people enjoy interacting with our companies every day through our online marketplaces, world-class media houses, and digital services. Our joint mission of empowering people in their daily lives is rooted in the values of our media heritage and a legacy of bold change.
