New Executive management team with increased focus on scalability and synergies

SmartCraft ASA has amended the Executive management team, enhancing focus on scalability and synergies within sales and marketing, product development and technology. Operations will now be organized according to geography with strategic and supporting functions on Group level when it comes to product and technology, marketing and finance.

“The last years we have expanded massively through organic growth and 9 acquisitions in Norway, Sweden and Finland. We continue to target 15-20 percent organic revenue growth with strong profitability and are now taking the next step in the development as a leading provider of SaaS based services for the construction industry. To have a holistic offering in the different geographies and be able to coordinate and scale our activities we have amended and realigned the organization with focus of each geographical market. Additionally, we have established shared key functions on the group level. This will allow our team and our services to function together even better. These changes are a natural evolution as we grow and we believe there are significant untapped synergies both in sales and marketing, product development and back office,” said CEO of SmartCraft Gustav Line. 

SmartCraft has appointed Country managers for Norway, Sweden and Finland, and established a new central functional position as Chief Marketing Officer.
