MEET A HOTEL REBEL
A hotel industry without Nordic Choice Hotels is boring
Petter A. Stordalen started as a strawberry seller, and ended up here, as the founder of one
of the largest hotel companies in the Nordic region. How? Well, for a start, he is not the
average guy, bustling with energy and enthusiasm.
Petter's story is really the essence of what we build our business on, our values: courage,
energy and enthusiasm. Like Petter, we love people. So that’s why we report on a triple
bottom line; People, Planet and Profit
Challenging the average since 1990
In 25 years we have challenged status quo in the hotel industry. And we promise to continue
to do so. As long as we make sure our employees feel free to be themselves, we will never
be average. Today we are 13.000 people from 124 different countries, which we believe is a
remarkable strength. All of them have a unique talent, and they bring their own unique story
to the table. We are diversity in practice, and we love it.
WE ARE DIVERSITY IN PRACTICE, AND WE LOVE IT.
Culture eats strategy for breakfast

Owner and Chairman
Started out selling strawberries at the market place in Porsgrunn. Built Nordic Choice Hotels from the ground and could not be more proud of the company it has become.
Why do you love NCH? Because selling strawberries at the market place in Porsgrunn can get lonely, because hotels are places for magical meetings, and because I have the greatest and most devoted co-workers in the world.
I started out as a receptionist at Quality & Resort Hafjell, where I worked for two years. Why Nordic Choice Hotels? Because its a not an ordinary hotel company; always searching for new ideas and new ways of doing things. I like that! My workdays are hectic and never dull, luckily, and I get to meet so many different people, every day.

I started in Nordic Choice Hotels early in 2015, when I joined as a housekeeper at Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret in Oslo. I like the energy at this place, and the loads of nice colleagues from a lot of different countries. And Nordic Choice Hotels provides me with a great opportunity to build a career in the hotel business. My career!
Meet Torgeir Silseth, CEO of Nordic Choice Hotels: Started out in the hotel industry as a chef. Has worked as CEO of Nordic Choice Hotels since 2009. Why do you love NCH?: Because the best ideas in our company are not generated at the top. The best ideas are results of our co-workers’ initiative and creativity.
I started working for Nordic Choice Hotels in 2012 as a breakfast waiter. Then I got a chance to try to work in the kitchen as a kitchen assistant. we always get new challenges, which create an exciting nerve to our workdays. And you know what? To constantly keep improving is part of our daily routines. That’s really cool!
