New Chief Marketing Officer - Peter Thyssen

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Peter Thyssen (43) will be joining Viking Heat Engines AS in Kristiansand from 1st of December this year. 

Peter Thyssen comes from his current position as Managing Director of Mandals AS, a world class producer of quality flat hoses with global markets. Before taking on the job as Managing Director he served as Sales Director in the same company.

Mr Thyssen is a graduate from Copenhagen Business School and worked for many years on the commercial and marketing side of the airline industry for both SAS and Austrian. In the years 1996 – 2002 he was Sales Director (VP) of the CHAM Paper Group, and has had an outstanding career in international sales and marketing.

Peter comes to us at a time when we are just beginning to negotiate and enter long term commercial arrangements with distributors and partner companies, and he brings with him experience and skills which are vital for the CraftEngine commercialization, says John Bernander, CEO of Viking Heat Engines AS. 


This is a company with innovation at the core of its business and an entrepreneurial air and energy which really intrigues me, says Peter Thyssen. Add to this a product - the CraftEngine - with great promise in producing energy from renewable sources and turning waste heat into valuable electricity. This is a venture that I really look forward to contribute to, concludes Peter Thyssen.
