"I am enormously impressed by the work Lasse and his family have put into creating what I would characterize as a real success story. It is with great humility that I will now, to the best of my ability, fill shoes that I consider to be very large. I look forward to becoming part of the IDÉ family from April 1st and help develope IDÉ House of Brands in the years to come ", says Kjetil.
