New CEO in place: Arne Norheim ready for Webstep
From May 2, Arne Norheim is the new chief executive officer of Webstep ASA. – I’m very pleased to get started. Webstep is an exciting company with committed and capable people. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and getting to know the company from within. Together, we’ll accomplish much, he says.
Arne Norheim is succeeding Kjetil Eriksen, who has headed the company since 2006. The new Webstep head’s career started in IBM ten years prior to that. Since 1996, Arne Norheim has held various positions within finance and administration in IBM, in the US, Sweden, France, and Denmark, before heading “Big Blue” in Norway for the last six years. He definitely left his mark there, among other things by doubling their turnover and transforming IBM into a revitalized, service-based, and distinct supplier in the Norwegian market.
– Webstep employees can make a difference
– Digital transformation and Webstep are two sides of the same story. These days, the vital matter is utilizing data in reorganization, innovation, and transformation. This applies to every business and social sector. Webstep provides experts – professionals with a profound technological insight and experience with tools. Our people are employed to make a difference when businesses are taking new measures through product development, service development, and future-oriented reorganization processes, the new Webstep CEO explains, who is already thoroughly informed about Webstep’s particular strengths where clients and staff are concerned.
Looking forward to developing Webstep further
– We are able to take on various roles and assist with consulting as well as operational aspects. We are capable of taking on the most demanding assignments, of recognizing the big picture and the prospects, but also of solving the tasks that come with them. Webstep creates values for our customers. This means potential for us as a company, interesting challenges for our staff, and it makes my job even more exciting. No wonder I’m looking forward to being part of Webstep’s further development, he smiles.
Concerned with competence sharing and regional foundation
Arne Norheim is now taking on the responsibility of a company which has grown city by city in Norway and Sweden. Solid competence communities with local supply ability have been established in city after city. Simultaneously, competence exchange between the branches has gained an increasingly strong foothold.
– In recent years, Webstep has established Centres of Excellence (CoE) in more and more areas, like cloud, IoT, and Data Science. This has contributed to Webstep’s development as a competence community and given our clients access to new competence and new opportunities. Our regional offices have played a crucial role in this process, and to me it’s important that we manage leverage this strength in the times ahead. Competence development and knowledge sharing are among our greatest strengths, for our employees as well as our customers, the new Webstep leader explains.
Thanks departing Webstep CEO Kjetil Eriksen
He also makes sure to thank the departing head as he transitions into his new role.
– Kjetil Eriksen has steered the ship steadily for a long period and developed Webstep from a small consultant company to a listed IT-supplier. When I now take over the helm, it’s a company in a robust position, in which I strongly believe we can develop further. Webstep has much to offer, not only to employees, clients, and owners, but also in the public space. Now I’m looking forward to getting started together with my new colleagues, he concludes.
