Prior to joining FINN.no in 2010, Anders Skoe (40) spent several years in the United States, working first in the startup Radiance Technologies, which was subsequently acquired by Comcast, and then in Google for five years. In FINN.no Skoe was first tasked with establishing and building up an insight unit before moving on to the role of CFO in August 2013.

Anders Skoe holds an MSc from Stanford University and has completed the Finance for Executives program at INSEAD.

Didrik Munch, Board Chair of FINN.no and CEO of Schibsted Norge, is pleased that Skoe has agreed to take on the job of leading FINN.no.

Anders has played a central role in developing FINN's current strategy. I'm confident that, with his technology background, his personal qualities and in-depth knowledge of FINN.no, he is the right candidate to lead FINN's future development," says Didrik Munch.

Anders Skoe is looking forward to taking on his new challenge in FINN.no.

"It is with humility, but also hunger, that I take on this role. FINN has been – and will continue to be – an innovation company, and I really look forward to the journey ahead. FINN has an outstanding starting point, with strong financial results, incredibly talented employees, a unique working environment, and a brand that the whole of Norway knows and loves. We will continue to create engaging services that help people buy, sell, give away – and dream. The strategy set out for FINN is an exciting one, and now all of us – across FINN and Schibsted and together with our customers and our users – will deliver world-class experiences," says Anders Skoe.

In addition to Anders Skoe, FINN's management team now comprises: Eddie Sjølie, SVP Strategic Relations and acting VP Commercial, Laila Dahlen, VP Product Management, Andreas Bengtsson, Chief Technology Officer, Kristin Sætevik, SVP Organizational Development and Communication, and Ruben Søgaard, who takes up the appointment of VP Commercial from 1 November.
