Grodan is pleased to announce the promotion of Ryan Halvorsen as the company’s North American retail business manager. He is now responsible for managing the rapidly growing and changing retail market in North America. While stepping into Vibeke Kjoelhede’s shoes isn’t an easy task, Ryan had the advantage of Vee’s mentorship for the previous three years. In this respect, Ryan could not have been better prepared for this new challenge. Ryan’s personal abilities, industry insights and business skills are sure to lead Grodan strategically into the future. “I’m lucky to have such a focused, dedicated team to work alongside,” he adds. The Grodan team has always been highly symbiotic, which is part of the secret of the company’s continued success. Ryan, his wife and three adorable girls reside in Henderson, Nevada, and he will continue to manage the business from that location. Congratulations, Ryan!
