Edda Group Appoints New Group CEO

Edda Group, a Nordic market-leading temporary staffing group, is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas Gleerup as the new Group Chief Executive Officer of Edda Group.

Thomas Gleerup brings to the role more than 25 years of experience in the industry. He co-founded the leading Danish temporary staffing company, Moment, a subsidiary of Edda Group. Most recently, he served as Country Manager in Moment Denmark and Group COO of Edda Group.

As Group CEO, he will continue the journey towards the vision of becoming the leading provider of flexible work in the Nordics. 

”I am proud to get this opportunity. I look forward to working in the new role and getting to know the Norwegian and Swedish organisations better. Not least the passionate and competent employees,” says Thomas Gleerup. 

Chairman of Edda Group, Jeff Gravenhorst, is pleased that Thomas has accepted the position as Group CEO. 

“In recent years, I have had the pleasure of working with Thomas on a Nordic level. He possesses an in-depth understanding of the industry and has demonstrated himself as a leader. I am convinced that Thomas is the right person to lead the realisation of our shared vision.”

Thomas Gleerup takes over the role from Rune Myrseth. Rune Myrseth started Eterni in 2011 and built a successful company that merged with Moment in 2021. This merger made the foundation for Edda Group.

“I would like to thank Rune Myrseth for his significant contribution creating a leading Nordic company. With the new constellation, we position Edda Group strongly in the Nordic market, where we will continue to grow through organic growth and acquisitions,” says Jeff Gravenhorst.
