Changes in management in Trimble Solutions Sandvika

Trimbles software business is operated from the multinational company’s local office in Sandvika, Norway. – We have had a steady growth over many years and 2019 is turning out to be an outstanding year for us. After 7 years in this position, it is time to move on to something else, says Idar Kirkhorn, stepping back as managing director from January 1st. 2020.

Kirkhorn will take on new responsibilities within product development. - Working with innovative solutions for the infrastructure industry is rewarding, says Kirkhorn. - Recently we got the product management responsibility for the unique time-saving planning software Quantm, and TILOS, the linear time-location planning software. We continue to develop both Novapoint for infrastructure design and Quadri for collaboration. We by this take on more of the responsibility for Trimble’s complete offering of civil engineering software.

We are now doing changes in the management, says Kirkhorn. I will step back as managing director and this role will be replaced by Heidi Berg in a new role as Business Development Manager Norway.

- Heidi has been working closely with customers both engineering companies, contractors, as well as owners in the Norwegian infrastructure industry. She has been working as a project manager for customer R&D projects and as a key influencer in professional associations in the industry, continues Kirkhorn.

- I’m looking forward to take on more responsibilities in our home market, says Heidi Berg. World wide, we see that Norway is a pioneer when it comes to adopting new technology and developing new working processes, this is why this market is so important to Trimble.
