My Background

Anders Haug Thomassen

Norwegian citizen with more than 25 years of international business experience.  Introduced to the world by an AFS scholarship to Honduras.  Educated from the Norwegian School of Management, specialized in International Management.  Thesis on "Importance of Cross Cultural Understanding in Business - case South Korea".

“Take contact if you are curious on how to release potentials in your organization”.

My business life has brought me to all continents;


In Brazil, I have managed and re-structured a company during hyper inflation and economic turmoil in the late 80-ies. 


In Asia, I have managed and re-structured a company during the Asian Crisis in the late 90-ies.  Later I was heavily involved in building a whole new organization in China and transferring knowledge from the various other companies in the group.   


In Europe, I have been part of an overall re-structuring process of an old family owned company moving its operations to China.  Further, I have downsized a company in the US and been part of building up companies in Miami, the Dominican Republic, Russia and China.  Managing change has become a habit and a driving force.


What these experiences have taught me: 


People make it, or break it. 


So the key lies in reaching out to people's emotions and heart, and reach a common understanding of goals.  If such a common understanding is reached with heart and logic, then the sky is the limit.
