Vimond receives the Villsauen 2016 Award

Vimond has been recognised for its innovation, growth, international success


Vimond Media Solutions has announced that it has received the Villsauen 2016 Award from Bergen Næringsråd (Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry). The award was presented to Helge Hoibraaten, CEO of Vimond, by Monica Mæland, Norway’s Minister of Trade and Industry, who described Vimond as “a shining example of innovation”.


“I am truly honoured to have received this award on behalf of the people and partners of Vimond who have put in such incredible effort and created the success for which we are being recognised”, has said Hoibraaten.


“There are many fine, international Norwegian businesses that have long been located in this region – but we are a new company, and a technology company. We have created something remarkable and exciting here in Bergen that has now become an international success. But the award does not just recognise what we have achieved in the past – it’s also about the direction in which we are heading, and what we will achieve in the future”.


Also present from Vimond Media Solutions at the ceremony were Christina Moe Hansen, CFO; Andreas Helland, COO; Glenn Skare Pedersen, CTO; and Miguel Silva, CCO.
