In this new role, Terrance will lead all aspects of operations for the company across all geographies. He will play a critical role in driving strategic growth initiatives.
Terrance Blanchard brings more than 20 years of experience in operations management to his new role at Fiven.

Pål was responsible for Fiven's research and development efforts since the company's inception. "Pål Runde has been instrumental in building the culture of innovation that is lived at Fiven today.
