Elop onboards Stian Thorsrud as Head of Communications and Marketing

Elop Group brings in Stian Thorsrud as Head of Communications and Marketing. He will be responsible for developing strategies and tactics for positioning the company and building simple yet effective communications that nurture Elop and Simplifai’s business and marketing goals. 

“Throughout my career, I have been telling stories in diverse ways. I am super excited to start telling the Elop story, and to take on this new challenge in what I passionately believe has the potential of becoming a unicorn company,” says Stian. 

“My focus will be more strategically to establish communication that generates business. An important goal for the communications team will be to open the eyes of asset owners and let them know that they no longer need to take the risk associated with costs, security, and reputation when taking the handover of new concrete assets.” 

Stian comes with almost two decades of experience in corporate communications, media, and strategy. Prior to this role, he was associated with Siemens for eight years in multiple leadership roles in communications in Norway and the Nordics. Stian also brings journalistic expertise, as he worked with the Norwegian Financial Daily and Dine Penger earlier in his career. He pursued his graduation in Economics from the Norwegian Business School and the University of Oslo.

Stian also stated that Elop’s ultrasound technology has huge market potential, so much so that he will invest in an ownership stake in the company.

“This is something that the world needs,” Stian says 

“I am very glad to bring Stian into the Elop team and my executive management team. I believe that smart communications will be a vital part of the future success of the company. Stian’s experience from Siemens and as a former journalist is highly relevant for Elop. He will bring a strong strategic focus and will play a key role in the positioning of the company both internationally and in Norway,” says Øivind Horpestad, CEO of Elop Group.
