Think Appoints Two New Executives

Electric vehicle carmaker Think announced today the appointment of two new executives to its top management scheme, both men from coming from "the automotive and renewable energy industries." The two are Jan Brentebrten and Helge Nerland.

We are making great progress in establishing our new state-of-the-art production facilities in Finland and rolling-out sales into new markets across Europe. These two new appointments will help us accelerate our growth and consolidate our leading position in the global EV market,” Richard Canny, Think CEO said in a release.

Brentebrten, former Mazda and Ford Europe executive, has been appointed marketing, sales and service director. Brentebrten has already joined Think's ranks.

Helge Nerland on the other hand, a 20-year veteran in the finance world has been appointed Think CFO. Nerland worked for Fondsfinans, where he was Senior Corporate Advisor and Tomra Systems. As is the case with Brentebrten, the new CFO will see to his duties as of right now.

We have the world’s first ready and available urban full battery electric vehicle in the THINK City, and with Jan Brentebraten’s sales and marketing might behind it, we expect to quickly start growing our order bank of 2,300 vehicles," Canny concluded.

"We also have an excellent CFO in Helge Nerland to keep our newly vitalised finances in good order. I can’t think of a better-qualified financier, and one with a specialty in renewable energy, to do this job.
