Øystein Vatland as Principal Consultant for Relato

Øystein started at the end of May as principal consultant in Relato. Øystein previously worked for Thales Norway as a senior project manager responsible for several significant projects in the defence sector. He also has solid experience working in the shipping, banking, telecom, and energy sectors with several big delivery and development projects. He has a civil engineering degree from NTNU in theoretical physics. Recently he has spiced up his CV with a master’s degree in Economics and Management from BI.

Øystein chose Relato based on the company’s unique security profile and the opportunity to work with many exciting customers and projects.

Relato chose Øystein as he has an exciting and varied valuable background for our existing and potential customers. This, combined with his interest in the management profession and the holistic perspective on change processes where technology is central, made him a perfect advisor for Relato.

As a principal consultant for Relato, Øystein’s vision is to add value to customers by using experience with best practices in projects and his inclusive leadership style. His favourite tool is Jira, as it ensures clear and good interaction between the project participants.

Øystein was supposed to start working for us in August, but demand, interest and energy made it natural to offer him to Statnett as early as May. It is also part of the story that Øystein is the employee in line that allows Relato to deliver a double-digit number of people.

We are incredibly proud and happy to have Øystein on the team earlier than planned and look forward to getting to know him better now that it is also possible to meet people in person.
