Drangsland is new CEO of Norske Skog

The board of directors of Norske Skog ASA has appointed Geir Drangsland as the new CEO as of 1 September.

Drangsland (pictured below), succeeds Tore Hansesætre, who has decided to leave Norske Skog after more than 14 years in the company.

Drangsland, who has served as the chair of the board since March 2023, steps out of the board of directors to become the new CEO. Arvid Grundekjøn has been selected the new chair of the board of directors. Grundekjøn has been member of the board of directors since 2018.

“I am pleased to announce Geir Drangsland as the new CEO of Norske Skog. He has an extensive background from the forest industry, and has worked closely with the management since his entrance in Norske Skog. At the same time, I will use the opportunity to thank Tore Hansesætre for his valuable contribution in Norske Skog’s transformation journey both as CEO and responsible for the mill conversion projects,” says Arvid Grundekjøn, chair of Norske Skog ASA.
