“I feel very honoured and excited to get this opportunity to lead Citec Norway into the next chapter. My main focus will be to build upon the solid foundations laid down by Nils-Erik and continue keeping Citec a great place to work, with satisfied customers and a sound growth”, says Espen Berg.

I am happy that we can continue to cooperate with Nils-Erik in his new role. At the same time, I feel very confident that Espen will continue to develop Citec’s operations in Norway and grow with strong customer satisfaction. I wish Espen all the best in his new role”, Johan ends.
