Norwegian names Tor-Arne Fosser as Executive Vice President (EVP) Airline Ecosystem

The budget carrier Norwegian that has taken a huge NOK 3 billion loan from the Norwegian Government and laid thousands of staff off in as a result of the coronavirus crises has named Tor-Arne Fosser as the first new Executive Vice President (EVP) Airline Ecosystem.

Fosser is currently the Chief Marketing Officer for Telenor Denmark and will take on the role from October 1, 2020 on a salary that is said to be the same as 16 cabin crew members put together.  He has over 16 years’ experience working for Telenor, and is now returning to Norway after almost two years in Copenhagen working as Chief Marketing Officer for the consumer market.

"I am really looking forward to getting Tor-Arne on board. His driving force, experience and digital expertise are tailored for the role of head of the newly created Airline Ecosystem department," said Jacob Schram, Chief Executive Officer for Norwegian.

Apparently, Fosser will be responsible for leading the development of new business solutions and revenue streams related to the customer journey, which essentially means there are more fees on the way for customers - should they return to the airline over the coming months.

"Norwegian is facing an exciting time in an industry with fierce competition, and I really look forward to being part of the team and to work with one of Norway’s strongest brands,” Tor-Arne Fosser said.
