Henrik Sollie to depart Goldfish Boat AS
Written by Goldfish Boat June 11, 2017
The Sollie brothers have decided to call time on a working relationship that stretches back some 20 years. After an intense period of discussion, Henrik Sollie is set to stand down from his position of Marketing & Sales Director for Goldfish Boat AS. In addition, he will leave the company’s board and transfer his shareholding to Pål Sollie, the founder, CEO, and Head of Design at Goldfish. Pål will now own 100% of the company.
“It’s not an easy step to take, but it is a necessary one,” Henrik states. “Myself and Pål have fundamentally different views regarding the future development of the business and simply could not find common ground.
“We were blocking one another’s ambitions and, for both the sake of the company and our own integrity, it became clear that we couldn’t continue in this way.”
Henrik continues: “It has been a fantastic journey over the past two decades and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have been part of a small group of people responsible for building a unique international brand. But, all things come to an end, and I feel it’s time to move on to new challenges.”
“Goldfish has become a part of who I am – my own identity – so I’ll take some time to decide on how I can best use my skills… and what to devote my next 20 years to.”
“Finally, I’d just like to say a very special thanks to all of the inspiring customers I’ve come into contact with over the space of some 700 projects since we started up. I feel I’ve learnt something from everyone, while sharing your energy and enthusiasm for our special boats. I hope to keep in contact with many of you going forwards. Thank you all for your cooperation and passion for performance.”
