On May 2, 2013 Transcendent Group expands its business to include Norway. The first person on site at the office, located in Oslo, is Lars Reidar Vold-Andersen. Lars enters as part-owner and CEO for the Norwegian company Transcendent Group Norge AS, with Transcendent Group Sverige AB as the majority owner. CEO Martin Malm comments on the venture and the recruitment of Lars:
– Transcendent Group has grown strongly the last couple of years, both in terms of turnover and in number of employees. It feels like a natural progression to continue our growth in Norway, especially since we have clients operating in both countries.
– We’ve been watching Lars for a long time and it feels great to have him in a lead position in the new company. Lars has the professionalism, expertise and drive needed to fast put us on the map in Norway.
Lars Reidar Vold-Andersen recently held a position as Senior Manager at PWC in Norway. His comments on the challenges ahead:
– Our immediate focus is to provide services to existing customers and present the company to new potential clients. I have great support from our skilled consultants in Stockholm and Gothenburg, and expect to have recruited several new colleagues to our office in Oslo by the end of 2013.
– Transcendent Group has an established and successful corporate culture. One of my great challenges will be to implement, customize and develop that culture for Norway. Even though Transcendent Group operates in the same market as the big four auditing and consultancy firms, we have a different view on the world and what it means to run a business. It’s very exciting and motivating to establish and be a part of the alternative to the existing players.
