"The Journey from Statoil to Circle K"

  • In 2012, Statoil ASA sold its shares in the wholly owned energy and retail company Statoil Fuel & Retail ASA to Alimentation Couche-Tard, a Quebec-based convenience store and road transportation fuel retail company.
  • In May 2016, Circle K Europe started the rebranding of more than 1000 stations in Scandinavia. Circle K has an ambition to be the world's preferred destination for convenience and fuel, and the network in Europe is an important part of that.
  • What is the story behind the rebranding and how is Circle K Europe going to succeed in building the new global brand?
Line M. Aarnes started in Statoil Fuel & Retail in 2011 and has had different management roles within the company with focus on the Customer Offer.

A networking reception with finger-food and refreshments followed Line's presentation.
