Pexip is pleased to announce that it has appointed Linda Christin Hoff to serve as CFO.
Linda comes to Pexip with a strong background in finance from industry and banking and has served as First Vice President at Nordea, Scandinavia’s largest bank. Linda joins Pexip from industry giant Norske Skog, where she has been serving as Vice President managing the Treasury and Funding department.
Upon joining Pexip, Linda expressed her enthusiasm for moving to a fast-paced and forward-leaning IT company. “I am all about speed and agility, and joining Pexip at this point is a great move for me personally,” she said. “I am really impressed about how the company has shaped up and prepared itself for a strong future through both its business model, investments, and strategic relationships. I am truly looking forward to joining the team.”

Åsmund O. Fodstad, Pexip CEO, is equally enthusiastic: “We are no longer a start-up company, but a young company with tremendous growth, a strong customer base, and a great platform for taking us to the next phase. Linda, with her strong background, is a perfect person to step into the leadership position to assist us in achieving that.”
Linda takes over the position as CFO from Irene Kristiansen, who has decided to move on to a Norwegian building society as its new CFO. Irene will continue as a trusted advisor and shareholder in Pexip alongside her new job.
