Ingvar Mathisen

For this port pro of the month, we are interviewing Ingvar M. Mathisen, who started as Port Director/CEO at Port of Oslo in August 2017. The Board of Directors was very clear it wanted a renewed focus on the port’s core business: port development and increasing cargo and passenger throughput. This renewed focus came after the port focused mainly on transforming previous port areas to city development projects for over a decade. Mathisen previously held the same position at the Port of Bodo in Northern Norway for 12 years.  28 February 2019 | Read more
