Welcome to our recent joiner
Here you will meet our new colleague Thomas Nortvedt. Thomas has recently joined our Digital & Technology-team in Oslo.
Learn more about Thomas Nortvedt and his professional background in this Q&A.
What do you work with?
I have worked with technology, law and politics my entire career, and my experience and competence in these fields will hopefully help clients find innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges they face.
There is no doubt, that these are special times, and onboarding has been different than it would normally be. But fortunately, technology has enabled me to meet my colleagues, clients and get started on exiting projects.
What made you want to join Ramboll Management Consulting?
I have previously worked briefly with my new manager. He persuaded me to take the leap from public to private sector when I came back to Oslo after three years in Brussels, working for the European Commission.
The prospect of being “allowed” to use my experience and expertise in concrete projects with clients was too tempting to decline.
What is the most significant professional experience you have had so far?
Working in The Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation and the European Commission have been two great experiences, and I have learned so much from so many talented colleagues. Working in the EU gave me a unique chance to see and follow the political processes first hand - but more importantly I learned about the people of Europe and how we are all different in our common “Europeanness”. An invaluable knowledge, when working with digitalisation that knows no borders.
What are the most exciting developments within your field of work?
Digitalisation sees no borders - physically or technologically. And it is not an isolated field of expertise, it is a part of everything we do. For instance I worked on some of the digitalisation initiatives in the "European Green deal" that aims to make Europe climate neutral by 2050.
How are you planning on bringing this fact to our clients?
I have been working with tearing down silos and changing the mindset of decision makers towards a more horizontal approach. I've seen how organisations have benefited from working multidisciplinary, and therefore I will keep on doing so. It is by far the most effective and sustainable way to meet the ever-changing digital agendas.
How do you define the higher purpose of what you do?
When the topics of my work life occasionally align with my personal interest, I am in a good place. This is why I never became an attorney; law is less exciting than digital transformation.
At my desk I always have…?
If I had the skills, I would love to be…?
Multilingual. I have worked with people in Brussels who are fluent in 6-7 languages, and it seems amazing to connect with people in their own languages.
