The 32-year-old comes from Oslo and is an executive vice president of the construction company AF Gruppen. Røsjø graduated with an MSc in Business and Economics from BI Norwegian Business School. It is the online newspaper E24 that names the 100 greatest leadership talents in Norway each year.

Røsjø says to E24 that he did not expect to go right to the top.

- No way had I expected this. This is just terrific, says this year’s leadership talent.

Solution-oriented leader

In the jury’s opinion, Røsjø is a solution-oriented leader who is very good at making everyone pull in the same direction. He has had a rapid career in AF Gruppen and can point to impressive results.

- Even so, it is his personality that may take Andreas right to the top in business. His colleagues say Andreas balances a somewhat unusual combination of analytical and creative skills, according to the jury.

- My colleagues have clearly said some really nice things about me. I am very grateful,” Røsjø comments.

Every fourth leadership talent from BI

The results show that one quarter of Norway’s 100 greatest leadership talents have a BSc or MSc from BI. In addition to the winner, number to on the list, Marit Krogh Owren, also has a degree from BI.

Marit Krogh Owren manages the CEO’s office in the DNB bank. She works closely with CEO Rune Bjerke and has risen through the ranks since starting as a group trainee seven years ago.
