Botnevik to Infranode
Erik Botnevik joins Infranode’s team as Country Lead Norway and Nordic Lead Telecom.
Infranode currently owns 33 percent of Norwegian district heat company Akershus Energi Varme, and sees significant potential for further investments in Norwegian infrastructure. Erik Botnevik will focus on further developing its Norwegian business with a focus on transport, energy, telecom and social infrastructure investments – in partnership with Norwegian municipalities and the rest of public sector as well as private businesses.
“We are excited about Erik joining our team and reinforcing our commitment to Norway as one of our home markets. Infranode already has one strong asset in Norway and is currently engaged in a number of live investment opportunities so the timing is perfect.” says Co-founding partner Philip Ajina.
In addition to his focus on Norway, Erik Botnevik will strengthen Infranode’s focus on the Nordic telecom sector. There are currently significant investment requirements in this sector, e.g. high-speed broadband across the Nordic region. Infranode will, as a potential partner to municipalities and telecom operators, seek to facilitate further broadband investments.
Erik Botnevik holds a B.Sc. from London School of Economics and an M.Sc. from Cass Business School.
