Knut Øvernes, Børge Liavik, and Morten Fløisvik have been collaborating for over 20 years and are joining imove in our new Stavanger office. They come from senior positions in Santander Consumer Bank and will ensure a scalable fleet for imove’s electric car subscription services that are currently live in Norway, Sweden, and soon the Netherlands. They will utilize their financial network and experience in banking to secure the necessary capital to scale our fleet and get third parties on our white-label solution. imove’s ambitious and competent crew made joining the imove revolution an exciting opportunity for our newest members.
Let’s get to know the new imovers
Knut Øvernes was the Operations Director in GE from 2009 to 2014, and in Santander from november 2014 to June 2015. Thereafter he was the Managing Director in Norway from July 2015 until present. From 2019 to present he was also the Nordic CCO. He’s from Stavanger, but has spent decades traveling Europe and the United States for work. The pandemic suspended this and drove him to new hobbies, including running and studying the London-based WSET Level 3 Award in Wines (with Børge.)
Knut is married with five kids and they’re an active bunch who love to ski. One of Knut’s sons competes at a high level in off-piste skiing, traveling the world for competitions. Knut is the chairman of his daughter’s handball club, and he coaches both handball and football. He is currently studying an innovation and disruption leadership executive program at NHH and is excited to begin officially at imove January 2022.
Now, we’d like to introduce Knut’s wine study buddy, Børge Liavik. Børge was at Santander from 2014 to present where he worked as Commercial Director B2C and Nordic Director for Digital and Open Banking. He has 23 years of experience in financial services and explained that he tackles situations with an entrepreneurial mindset. He is married with two kids, and they’re an active skiing and outdoor family as well. Børge comes from Andøya in northern Norway and is a die-hard Manchester United fan.
Last but not least, meet Morten Fløisvik. Morten was the Nordic Business Development Director for Santander where he worked for over 11 years. He is a Stavanger native who has two children together with his partner. Morten comes from a cycling family and is actively involved in managing his sons team as well as arranging events for road and track cycling.
Morten is a Liverpool fan and calls himself a gadget guy. He loves to test out new technology and investigate new innovations on the market.
We are excited to be welcoming these three impressive people to the team. We can’t wait to see how they contribute to imove revolutionizing the automotive industry and getting more happy EV-driving customers on the road!
