Stretch Norway is now positioned as a strong part of Scandinavia’s leading network within procurement transformation and cloud-based procurement solutions.
It was an easy and obvious first choice when the board decided to ask Kristin if she would lead and further develop Stretch Norway in their current market position. We are very proud that Kristin said ‘yes’ to becoming the new CEO for Stretch Norway.
