SSP appoints new CEO of Nordics
SSP Group has promoted Bente Brevik from managing director of Norway to chief executive officer of its Nordic region. She joined SSP in February 2018 and has since led her team in developing key new business wins, including the travel specialist’s entry into Iceland with two units at Reykjavik airport.
Bente has also led the evolution of SSP’s Point retail offer in Norway. This has resulted in recent contract renewals and the start of the company’s retail expansion into new European markets, such as Spain and Switzerland, this year.
Jeremy Fennell, chief executive officer of SSP’s European business, said: “The appointment of a Nordic CEO reflects the scale of our European business, which has seen a strong recovery since the pandemic. With new categories, locations and countries opening up across the region in 2024 and an exciting pipeline, the appointment of Bente as Nordics CEO will allow us to strengthen our operations and be a more efficient organisation.”
