Her energy and competence have been instrumental to the positive development and growth of Visma. Hverven joined the company in 2011 and was appointed Chief HR Officer in 2012. She has systemised and coordinated joint HR efforts across all entities to improve employee engagement and attract top talent to Visma.
As CFO, Bjerkan has steadily led Visma through healthy and continuous financial growth. The former founder of Multisoft (a part of the merger on which Visma was established) is involved in all decisions that could possibly affect Visma’s financial results.

As Director of the Software SMB Division, Torp is in charge of providing small company owners and medium-sized businesses with cloud ERP software that supports business growth and efficiency. Providing customers with user-friendly, flexible solutions that enable them to manage time and resources effectively is a top priority for Steffen Torp and his team. His experience from working with small internet startups, combined with many years in Visma's finance department, gives him a dual perspective of the efficient finance operation of both small and medium-sized businesses.
The division provides full-scale ERP and HRM systems for complex businesses along with public sector production systems for areas such as school administration, care for the elderly, and child protective services. Both government organization and private enterprises are in a state of transition, migrating from on premise systems to cloud solutions – With a combination of technical and business skills Nils Vold has the expertise to succeed with this cloud transformation - and his experience with M&A is important for the future strategy in Visma Enterprise.
Handling – and winning – the largest ICT contracts in the public sector, this division combine the highest professional standards with an unwavering customer value. Boje Møller leads by example, and the former IT consultant’s experience is valuable for all aspects of his job.
IT service delivery in the digital age means rapid growth and major changes as emerging technologies introduce paradigm shifts. Cloud service delivery is the next major driver. Success in changing environments requires the ability to innovate, design and deliver while providing steady and secure IT deliveries. Having the capability to design and implement this value chain in the form of services is critical to the future success of Visma IT and its mission of delivering business value. Espen brings broad IT experience, ranging from technical operations to top management, from both the private and the public sector.
With strategic acquisitions an important factor in Visma’s growth, Männik has since 2010 had to make full use of his diplomacy skills and excellent financial insight. Männik and his highly skilled team of financial analysts and experts are hands-on throughout all Visma’s M&A processes.
Through a systematic and long-term effort, Settevik has turned Visma into a highly recognized and trusted brand. Overseeing marketing and communication resources in five countries and across a myriad of entities, her conviction of the value of a strong master brand has certainly come to fruition.
