Ann-Christin Andersen


Experience & Background

Ann-Christin Andersen is an executive with 35 years’ experience in the energy industry. Most of her operational career has been devoted to the supplier industry in the petroleum sector and her non-executive career has been in the renewable energy sector including the circular economy. 

She has held executive and senior management positions at Shell, ABB, Kongsberg Group, and FMC Technologies (now TechnipFMC). At TechnipFMC, she served as Chief Digital Officer and General Manager for Europe and Africa and held SVP/Vice President roles for Projects and Products. She has also served as chair and non-executive director of several boards over the last two decades.  

Today, Andersen is CEO of Norwegian Energy Partners, a public/private partnership for increased Norwegian exports in the energy sector. She combines her executive role with strategic advisory through her start-up 4ADA and non-executive board work in the UK, Denmark, and Norway. Andersen holds a bachelor’s degree with 1st Class Honors in Offshore Electrical Engineering from Heriot-Watt University, UK, and an Executive MBA with Honors from IMD. 

Expertise & Interests

Andersen has a particular interest in: the role of energy in value creation and world peace, balancing the trilemma, energy security, decarbonization, and affordability, and securing a just transition whilst tackling climate change. In addition, she is focused on how leadership and culture transformation can occur alongside future-proof strategy development strategies.  

Inspired by the real-life learnings at IMD to “challenge what is and inspire what could be,” Andersen pursues digital transformation – including the human side of digital – the circular economy, and how to scale from idea to business for startups or ventures inside big corporates. 

In addition, she has a focus on the role of boards during geopolitical instability, rapid technology changes (AI), and climate change. What does good governance and sustainability look like?
