Brækhus appoints new CFO

It is with great pleasure that we announce Espen Bryn Johannessen as the new CFO of Brækhus.

Brækhus has embarked on a journey of transformation and modernisation. We have refined our strategy and forged new alliances, all with the aim of providing our customers with the best advice and the best customer experience.

– We believe that exceptional customer experiences are primarily achieved by developing skilled, motivated, and engaged employees who are willing to go the extra mile. We aim to attract the best talents, take care of our people, and develop skilled employees. As part of this effort, we are modernising our leadership with a focus on digitisation, finance, corporate governance, as well as employee and organisational development,” says Managing Partner Atle H. Carlsen. 

For the position of CFO, Brækhus has appointed Espen Bryn Johannessen. Espen joins Brækhus from his role as Business Controller at OBOS Eiendom. He also brings experience from BDO, where he served as a key account for several law firms. 

– I am excited about the opportunity to be part of Brækhus. I look forward to applying my experience and knowledge to contribute to further strengthening the company’s position and growth, says Espen Bryn Johannessen.

In addition to Espen, Brækhus recruited Oda Watz as CDO last fall.

– We are very pleased to have signed Espen and Oda. We are in the process of recruiting another candidate for the leadership team and hope to announce another signing this spring, Carlsen adds.
