Marianne Gaarder Amland

Purpose-Driven Leadership Executive

Greater Oslo Region

I am a purpose-driven leadership executive with a strong intrinsic drive for creating value for society through responsible business. I believe that diverse teams and strong cross-functional collaboration that breaks down the silos in the company, is the best base for value creation. I have a pragmatic growth mindset, and I thrive the most when I can impact and work with energetic people that are passionate about moving things forward towards something better than yesterday.

Core strengths:
- 6+ years experience from leadership & governance in a multinational company during high growth phase
- Ability to lead and scale a sustainable business model with transformational leadership and a clear direction to follow
- A leadership style that views all stakeholders as equally important
- A strong set of interpersonal skills and a leadership behaviour characterized by high degree of trust, open communication, involvement of stakeholders, agility, alignment, and autonomy

Personal values include open, energetic, emphatic, robust, change-driven, and uncomplicated. I am curious and impatient - truly passionate about continuous learning, development and improvement in all aspects of life and business.

I hold a Master of science in Business and Economics from BI Norwegian Business School with a Major in Finance, and is currently studying Sustainable Business Strategy at Harvard Business School Online.
