Haartveit Completes Team of Energy Directors
“Having worked professionally for almost two decades within the power market, I am excited to join Volue. There is an ongoing massive transition in all power markets, presenting a number of challenges throughout the entire value chain. Volue has the competence and technology to assist in tackling these challenges which provide substantial market opportunities in Europe and beyond,” says Haartveit.
Educated in Berlin and Oslo, Haartveit’s professional career includes various research and management positions at Point Carbon, Thomson Reuters and Refinitiv.
“I have served in roles very similar to my new role in Volue, but perhaps with an even stronger international focus. I am looking forward to leading a team that will expand the business of Volue – also geographically,” says Haartveit.
The 45-year-old resident of Oslo will take on his new responsibilities at Insight by Volue, recently renamed from Wattsight, no later than April 1.
“There is no better hire for this position. We are delighted to have Jørund join our organisation. He completes a team that is now perfectly positioned to expand the market opportunities for Volue – and to capture them,” says Tom Darell, Executive Vice President and Head of Energy at Volue.
The signing of Haartveit completes the search and recruitment of three top executives in the Energy segment of Volue. Last Fall, Camilla Thorrud Larsen was named Director of Optimisation and Trading Software, and on January 1, Jan Tore Våle, former CFO and interim CEO at Markedskraft, assumed his new role as Director of Market Services.
