Dag Mejdell to quit Posten Norge

Group CEO of Posten Norge has resigned after 10 years in the top job.

Speaking of his time with the postal and logistics group, Mejdell said: ”We set ourselves ambitious goals 10 years ago and have worked with a long-term view and in a targeted fashion. Posten Norge very successfully restructured its mail operations in line with developments and new customer needs. Among other things, Digipost has been established as a secure digital mailbox for the future. At the same time, we have developed powerful logistics operations that are growing in the Nordic market.

“We have strengthened our range of services in a good dialogue with our customers, modernised the Posten brand and launched Bring in the business market.”

The Group’s directors are now beginning the recruitment process for a new CEO. Mejdell will remain in his post until his replacement takes over.

“After 10 years as Group CEO of Posten and more than 20 years as a senior executive in industry, I want to continue to be involved in developing Norwegian and international companies, including through directorships,” said Mejdell.

Posten Norge’s chairman of the board Idar Kreutzer said of the resignation, “Dag Mejdell has done a very good job and made his mark on Posten’s development during a period of industrialisation, customer-orientation and Nordic growth. Posten is currently a competitive and leading mail and logistics group that has the Nordic region as its domestic market and is well positioned for the future. Mejdell has put people first and delivered impressive results.”
