-I look forward to working with many talented employees in Avinor. Avinor is important for the development of local communities, regions and the country. A sustainable aviation system is a key part of Norwegian transport. I have always been interested in the interaction between and development of people, processes and technology. It will be high on the agenda. Avinor is an exciting company, with a clear mission and a clear position, says Foss.
He points out that the entire industry is in a very demanding period.

Will lead the restructuring process further
Avinor is in a major restructuring process as a result of a loss of revenue. - Foss has worked a lot with restructuring work and strategic management. He has extensive experience in building good internal culture, and has digital competence and experience from operations. The board therefore believes that he is well equipped to lead the company further, Tanum concludes.
Foss will take up the position on February 15th. He has been given the same conditions as Dag Falk-Petersen, which indicates a fixed salary of 2.8 million NOK, and a total compensation of approx. 4 million NOK (including pension costs).
Falk-Petersen retires in June. From February to June, he will be available to the board.
