Today, Schibsted has appointed Per Christian Mørland as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Mørland has held a number of leading strategic and operational roles in Nordic and global companies through his career. He is currently Group CFO at Telia in Stockholm. Prior to his current role he has held positions such as CFO Telia Norway, CFO for Telenor Asia, and Telenor Denmark.
“Per Christian brings outstanding experience as CFO in big, listed and global companies to the table in Schibsted. In addition to his broad and relevant background, he will bring both energy and a competitive and commercial attitude with him to the Executive Management Team and to Schibsted at large. Per Christian has been exposed to complex organisations for a number of years, and has a strategic and analytical mindset. I am thrilled to welcome him to Schibsted and my Executive Management Team”, says Kristin Skogen Lund, CEO at Schibsted.
Mørland is 43, and holds a Master of Science degree from Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH). He succeeds Ragnar Kårhus, who in January announced that he wanted to step down.
“I am both proud and honoured to get this opportunity. Schibsted is a company and organisation that I have always admired, combining a long and proud history with an ability to innovate and transform. I really look forward to getting started and being part of the next chapters in the Schibsted journey”, says Per Christian Mørland, newly appointed EVP CFO at Schibsted.
Mørland assumes the role at Schibsted no later than 1 October 2023. Kårhus will remain as EVP CFO until Mørland joins. As previously communicated, Kårhus will stay on as senior advisor in Schibsted.
