XXL ASA has announced the appointment of Anders Kjellén as the new managing director of its operations in Norway, starting in the 4th quarter of 2016. He has been the chief executive of Mammut Ajungilak since 2012, and he is currently the managing director of Mammut for all the Nordic countries. Prior to this, he worked for Gresvig for more than 18 years in various positions including those of head of sales for its G-Sport chain, CEO of Gresvig Detalj and regional manager and store manager for the Norwegian sports retailing group. He is a Swedish citizen residing in Norway. His position at XXL had been held until last February by Anders Fjeld, who then became chief operating officer of the fast-growing Nordic sports retailer. He stepped back temporarily into his former position after the new Norwegian managing director, Leif Thoresen, left it after only a couple of months in the job for personal reasons.
