Four months after becoming a publicly traded company listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange, AutoStore has installed Hiva Ghiri as its first Vice President of Investor Relations.
"We’re excited to have Hiva join AutoStore at a critical time in our history during a period of rapid global expansion," said AutoStore CFO Bent Skisaker.
"Hiva’s strong analytical abilities and communication skills will be highly advantageous for us as we strive to tell the AutoStore story to not only our investors but the public at-large, including the every-day shoppers who benefit from the efficiency of our automated storage technology.”
With more than 10 years of experience in similar, high-profile leadership roles, Ghiri specializes in handling complex and parallel work streams with several stakeholders, developing investor strategies and targeting, and managing external reporting.
In addition to developing and executing our investor relations strategy, she will actively oversee AutoStore investor roadshow activities around the world, as well as the development of quarterly and annual financial reporting and the annual environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report.
Ghiri formerly served as Vice President, Investor Relations & ESG for Hexagon Composites, helping the clean energy technology manufacturer define its investment profile, professionalize its external engagement activities, and complete critical acquisitions and spin-offs.
She holds a bachelor of arts in international business from the European Business School London and Universidad de Barcelona.
“I have followed the AutoStore growth journey and seen the transformative effect it can have on a company’s logistics and supply chain,” said Ghiri.
“AutoStore is a true global technology leader that will continue to drive radical improvements through its advanced technology. I am so excited to join the company and contribute to the future journey as part of the outstanding team and further develop the investor relations and equity market position for the company.”
Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Ghiri lives in Oslo with her partner Sverre, their daughter Sienna, and her bonus children Alexander and Emma. She enjoys hiking and randonee skiing (aka alpine touring) at the Sunnmøre Alps in western Norway in her spare time, as well as playing tennis and working out at the gym.
Ghiri will be based out of our Oslo office, reporting directly to Skisaker and the AutoStore executive management team.
