Pricing, Contract & Tender Management
I am a Pricing & Tender Strategist in the RTG business unit for our Nordic countries.
My background is a bit special and the road to Medtronic has been through different industries. I was educated as a plumber, but found out quite fast that it was not me. I then got in to the restaurant business where I was a manager for several years.
I moved from Norway to Denmark for private reasons and it made me also do a change of career and started in Shell Denmark as a Logistics Coordinator. After some years I was ready for new challenges and started in Medtronic as a Tender & Contract Specialist covering Norway, I had this position for 3 years before I got the position as a Tender & Pricing Strategist.
Working for Medtronic has taught me so much. Medtronic is such a large company, with so many career possibilities and opportunities to learn new things.
When I think about my last 4 years in Medtronic, I will definitely highlight the merger of Medtronic and Covidien. It was a memorable day, we had worked so hard to put everything together. I also learned a lot from the whole process, so definitely the most memorable experience in Medtronic so far.
