Iver Horrem’s heart beating for Volleyball harder than ever
News from the National Federations
Oslo, Norway, January 2, 2017. Last summer Iver Horrem retired after 16 years as a professional Beach Volleyball player. Participation in 183 World Tour events, one Olympics, six World Championships, 13 European Championships are some of the statistics characterising a long and copious carrier. But Horrem, born in Aukra, is not totally finished with Volleyball. He is now working to achieve top results in Norwegian Volleyball as the Marketing Director for the Norwegian Volleyball Federation (NVBF).
Horrem started in his new job on August 1, and says: “I am happy for the chance to be a part of the continuing development of Norwegian Volleyball, a sport I am strongly committed to and which my heart beats harder for. At the same time, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has supported me as a player. I hope I have given you more moments of joy than sorrow.”
NVBF’s President Eirik Sørdahl states: “I am very happy that Iver is a part of our team. With his extensive experience and knowledge, his vast network and his winning personality, NVBF has acquired a strong “marketer” of Norwegian Volleyball.”
The Secretary General Kristian Gjerstadberget adds: “Iver has already shown what he is capable of and has several plans for NVBF’s marketing and communication work. He also has good knowledge about and understanding of Norwegian athletics, NVBF and working in an organisation. We welcome his contribution to our fellowship and in shaping Norwegian Volleyball’s future.”
