Spir Group strengthens top management team

Spir Group is gearing up for growth and making changes to the management team. -We are gearing up the digitalization rate in public sector and the real estate industry, says Group CEO Per Haakon Lomsdalen.

From the beginning of June, the CEO of Spir Group's subsidiary Boligmappa, Erling Olaussen, will transition to a newly created role in the corporate management team as Chief of Strategy and M&A. He will be in charge of Spir Group's strategic direction and acquisitions moving forward.

"Through innovation and acquisitions, we will create growth. Spir Group has a clear ambition to strenghten our position as a leader in the Nordic region within property technology and digital solutions for public sector," says Olaussen.

Olausson has extensive experience in the software industry, having served in both Technology and Managing Director positions. He holds an MBA from NHH, and a master's degree from BI in innovation and commercialization. He reports that there are two key focus areas in the new position:

"We see great growth potential within artificial intelligence and value creation of the data across Spir Group's four subsidiaries: Ambita, Boligmappa, Sikri, and Metria," he states.

New CEO for Boligmappa

The vacant CEO position at Boligmappa will be succeeded by Raymond Vaaler-Hansen. As the company's new CEO, Vaaler-Hansen brings a clear commercial profile, and strong experience in the technology industry from heavyweights like IBM, Microsoft, and Salesforce.

"Boligmappa is an innovative and exciting company, and an important player in a rather traditional industry. I have always enjoyed working at the intersection of technology and business, focusing on helping customers with digitalization and cloud technology. I look forward to getting to know the people at Boligmappa and Spir Group, and collaborating across the companies," he says.

"Spir Group has significant growth ambitions, and we will work hard to accelerate the pace of digitalization in the public sector and the property industry. I look forward to seeing Erling in corporate management and Raymond at Boligmappa drive further growth for Spir Group," says Lomsdalen.

Erling Olaussen's first working day as Head of Strategy and M&A at Spir Group is June 1. Raymond Vaaler-Hansen is Boligmappa's new CEO and will also join the corporate management from mid-August.
