New CEO in Norconsult

Per Kristian Jacobsen is no newcomer in Norconsult. After eight years as chairman, he has now taken over after John Nyheim as CEO. 

Per Kristian Jacobsen lives at Siggerud, outside Oslo with his wife and three sons aged 24 to 26 years.

He is equally happy cross-country skiing as running in the forest.
He also closely follows his sons' interest in scouting and football. Originally from Langesund, where he owns a house and boat, Jacobsen is a keen reader, with a particular penchant for crime and history books.

"I take a keen interest in technological developments and am particularly interested in books on the role played by technology in military history," he enthuses. This interest was triggered when he took officer training in the Norwegian Artillery and he spent three years in the Norwegian Armed Forces before starting studies at the then Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH).
