Vimond received the prestigious Villsauen 2016 Award

Vimond Media Solutions today announced that it had received the prestigious Villsauen 2016 Award from Bergen Næringsråd (Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry). The award was presented to Helge Hoibraaten, CEO of Vimond, by Monica Mæland, Norway’s Minis
Bergen(11/28/2016) -

The award was created over a decade ago by Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry to recognise and promote businesses within the area and to reinforce its vision of the region becoming the most attractive part of Norway in which businesses can operate and succeed. It is given to companies, such as Vimond, who represent growth, international success and significant potential for the future.

 

“I am truly honoured to have received this award on behalf of the people and partners of Vimond who have put in such incredible effort and created the success for which we are being recognised,” said Hoibraaten. “There are many fine, international Norwegian businesses that have long been located in this region – but we are a new company, and a technology company. We have created something remarkable and exciting here in Bergen that has now become an international success. But the award does not just recognise what we have achieved in the past – it’s also about the direction in which we are heading, and what we will achieve in the future.”

 

Also present from Vimond Media Solutions at the ceremony were Christina Moe Hansen, CFO; Andreas Helland, COO; Glenn Skare Pedersen, CTO; and Miguel Silva, CCO.

 

In making the award, the awarding committee noted how Vimond Media Solutions had secured an agreement with the world’s largest media conglomerate in 2012, and how it now counts 20 leading media companies among its customers: how tens of millions of people watch TV enabled by Vimond technology; how, from its beginnings at its Bergen headquarters, Vimond now has offices around the world in New York, Silicon Valley, Sydney and Dubai; how the company had grown from just nine people at its founding in 2011, to over 120 today; and how the company now employs 20 different nationalities.
