Gaute Tosterud new Country Manager for Unifaun Norway
February 29, 2016
Gaute Tosterud, former Sales Manager at FARA ASA, has recently been appointed Country Manager for Unifaun in Norway. Gaute has in his previous career worked with logistics on practical as well strategic level. He also has extensive experience from IT, which makes him a valuable recruitment for Unifaun. In addition to this Gaute has previously built subsidiaries with new sales and partner networks in new markets. Regarding why he chose to work for Unifaun, he says:
“Unifaun is a very exciting company for me personally as I have both an interest and a background from logistics and IT. Unifaun is a fast growing company that has been able to preserve their company culture and a flat organization in spite of being present in many different geographies. As a new colleague you feel most welcome and you soon understand that Unifaun has a strong team spirit where you work close to each other with easy collaboration between colleagues.”
Unifaun established their norwegian company in the end of 2015 and have now appointed a Country Manager. In spite of the norwegian company’s young age Unifaun’s TM-system already have connections to all the large norwegian carriers and ERP-systems. The main focus ahead is to ensure that the market knows that Unifaun is present in Norway and to spread knowledge about how Unifaun’s TM-systems can help companies make their business more efficient. A first step towards being visible locally has already been made as Unifaun recently participated with a stand at the logistics fair “Transport & Distribution” in Oslo.
“We kick started the Norway establishment by participating at “Transport & Distribution”. We met with new and existing customers, carriers and IT partners at the fair and they all gave us a lot of positive feedback. The feeling is that most are happy to see that there is movement in the norwegian TM-market. I am sure that we have a lot to contribute with in Norway and I really look forward to the time ahead!”
