OSLO: Norway’s number two PR agency, Woldsdal and Partners, has

elected as chairman Harald Norvik, a former chief executive of the

Norwegian state oil company Statoil.



Norvik headed Statoil from 1988 to 1999. He currently chairs the

supervisory board at Den norske Bank and is a director of Scandinavian

airline SAS.



He replaces Morten Polmar, who will remain on the Woldsdal board but

will now concentrate on his primary role as CEO of the Leo Burnett

group, Woldsdal’s parent company and Norway’s largest advertising

group.



Meanwhile Torger Reve, president of the Norwegian School of Management

(BI), is another addition to the board. He is also a strategy and

management professor at BI, having headed the Foundation for Research in

Economics and Business Administration.



Woldsdal last month won what is believed to be Norway’s largest ever PR

account with Microsoft, launching Windows 2000 in Norway.
