Telia names Norway CEO ahead of Get acquisition

Abraham Foss

Abraham Foss, currently the CEO of Telia Norway, will take charge of Telia’s enlarged Norwegian operation when its acquisition of cable operator Get is completed in the first quarter of next year.

Foss, who took up his current post in 2015, will take over management of Get from current CEO Gunnar Evensen, who has decided to leave the company.

Evensen will remain in place until the merger has been completed.

“Abraham has what it takes to continue our successful development of Telia Company in Norway. We face exciting times ahead as a strong challenger in the Norwegian market with converged customer offerings for both consumers and enterprises. Our track record of creating value in Norway through acquisitions is second to none,” said Johan Dennelind, president and CEO of Telia Company.

Danish telecom operator TDC agreed to sell its Norwegian business, including Get and telecom subsidiary TDC Norway to Telia for NOK21 billion (€2.2 billion) in July, leaving the Danish company to focus on its domestic operation.
