Sara Andrén-Johansen new CEO of Nettbil

After a thorough process with highly qualified external and internal candidates, Sara Andrén-Johansen has been appointed as the new CEO of Nettbil.

Nettbil is a digital marketplace in Norway for used cars sold from private users to car dealers, through a closed online auction. Schibsted bought the majority of shares in Nettbil in 2019.

Experienced leader

Sara is a highly experienced leader with a strong track record of driving value creation through strong revenue and profitability growth as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for FINN, where she also headed strategy, customer support, legal and GDPR.

She has recently held the position of Chief Operating Officer of the Accelerator unit in Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces, and since August she has been the interim CEO of Nettbil.

“I know Sara as an engaged, result-oriented and ambitious leader with a vast focus on innovation and creating new business opportunities, combined with a true passion for people and for building a strong culture. This is the perfect match for Nettbil, as their success formula is an innovative alternative to the traditional way of selling your car,” says Laila Dahlen, VP Nordic Accelerator.

Fantastic opportunities

“As I step into my role as the new CEO of Nettbil, I am thrilled by the fantastic opportunities ahead. Nettbil is a remarkable company that has already achieved great success,” Sara says.

She adds that she is impressed with the commitment and energy of the Nettbil team. “I have no doubt that together we will continue to enhance the value we provide to both customers and dealers.”

“In today’s mobility landscape, the sourcing of used cars is becoming more important for dealers. Nettbil is a tool to grow their business by offering a vast set of tested used cars from consumers all over Norway. For our users, we have found the sweet spot for the smartest way to sell your car – combining convenience, safety and a good price in one great product. Nettbil is on a high-growth journey with an exciting future. I am very grateful that I can be a part of this and honoured by the trust and support from the Nettbil board.”
