Rune Hegrestad is the new CEO for Nokas Cash Handling

Hegrestad comes from the role of COO (Chief Operating Officer) in Avarn Security Group and will formally take over as CEO of the Nordic Cash Handling business from 1 January 2022.

- I am pleased that Rune Hegrestad has agreed to lead our Nordic Nokas business in the years to come. He knows the companies in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland well, both from a group perspective, but also because Rune has in recent months had a temporary overall operational responsibility for Cash Handling, says Avarn Security Group CEO Vidar Berg.

Hegrestad will continue to be part of the management team in the Avarn Security Group and will report to CEO Vidar Berg.

- I thank you for the trust and look forward to being part of the Nokas team and not least getting to know all the good people who work here. For a number of years, Nokas has been a visible player in the cash handling market and has taken a social responsibility to ensure access to cash. In order to take care of such a role, we have been concerned with catching new trends at an early stage and adapting and developing ourselves in line with market demand and expectations. In the years to come, this will become even more important, says Rune Hegrestad.
