Ingela Mandl

Sales Manager, Marine, Norway

With 17 years of experience in the maritime industry and profound expertise within Sales and Key Account Management, B2B, Business Development, Marketing & Strategic Planning, Ingela joined Arribatec Marine in the last quarter of 2021. Her international experience and knowledge makes her a great resource in our global company.


“There are two megatrends in the maritime industry: decarbonization and digitalization. The Arribatec Marine Product portfolio ties these nicely together, and offers the market what I consider to be the most important of all components a shipowner needs for decarbonizing the fleet, a centralized data system giving insight in the vessels carbon intensity on multiple levels.

A challenge with digitalization is that the customers at some point gets stuck with an array of different service providers with different systems that are not integrated. In such cases the customers capture data, but they are unable to properly utilize the data to drive business, processes and change efficiently. Arribatec solves this, not only in the maritime sector, but for many other sectors as well, through the ‘one-solution’ concept which I strongly believe in.”

Vilde Bolstad

Business Consultant, EA & BPM, Norway

Throughout her education Vilde has worked within sales, recruitment and consulting, this in addition to her masters degree within information systems and digital business systems makes her a great addition to our EA & BPM advisory team. Vilde joined Arribatec in June 2022. 

“The scope of what we deliver makes Arribatec an exciting employer as we work with management systems and consulting that creates value in enabling our customers to create even more value. Being able to arrange for a customer to take the company’s strategy over to a very specific execution is a very exciting journey to be a part of.

I chose Arribatec because it is clear that they see their employees as their most important resource. During my recruitment process everyone I talked to said that they feel that Arribatec genuinely wants to develop its employees, something I have already experienced during my first month. It is a meaningful job where you get to develop your own mindset and yourself as a person in the process.

That fact that Arribatec is in such an exciting growth phase made me want to be part of this journey with them. Based on their values and how they include the employees, I really feel that I have the opportunity to contribute, which gives me a lot of ownership in what I do.”

Beatriz Santos joined us in February 2022 with more than 15 years of experience in the New Zealand, the UK and Spanish markets in her pocket. With extensive understanding of SaaS Marketing as well as B2B strategic marketing planning, and a wide skillset within everything B2B marketing Beatriz is now an invaluable resource in our Marketing Department.


“Arribatec is a great place to work. It is very exciting to be part of growing company that support its employees and it feels amazing when we achieve difficult projects together. One of the greatest things of being part of a growing company is the big scope for innovation and ownership, something that in marketing is a real perk!

I feel that having a global and supporting team is a bonus, as we get to know more about other cultures. I love that relationships between colleagues are based on respect and care about one another. I have been here for 6 months already, my team is located all over Europe (but very tight!) and I feel very settled and happy I’m an Arribatecer”

Arribatec Cloud Bergen has a dispersed customer group that presents various challenges. I enjoy working here and feel that I get to develop professionally; I´ve actually been certified within Azure and Datadog.”

“I met Bendik Kristiansen (Chief Design Officer, Arribatec Hospitality) and he started to explain the different hospitality solutions that Arribatec Hospitality is developing, and this really sparked my interests. So, I applied for a job, and now I’m here. I love traveling and I often come across some challenges that I really want to solve as a Product Designer.

I will be widely focusing upon the user experience, testing, and observing users how they interact with the digital solutions. Then identify the challenges and ultimately design solutions that solve these problems and offer our users the best experience, and of course the best customer experience as well.”
