Øyvind Westby Brekke

Executive Vice President, Head of Products, Customer Journeys and Innovation (‘CPO’) Retail Banking DNB

I have spent the past 10 years in DNB, in different units of Norway’s largest financial institution. The past 5 years mainly in Retail Banking; leading some of our largest digitalisation efforts - notably Mortgage Digitization and Mobile Banking. DNB was among the first banks to fully automate the mortgage process end2end, and we now have 70%+ digital mortgage applications. In January we celebrated the 1 year anniversary for our new mobile bank, taking our active mobile user base up by 50% and number of log-ins by 4x compared with the year before.


Prior to joining DNB I was a founder and CEO of the listed company Navamedic ASA and spent some time in Venture Capital. Early in my career I was a management consultant with McKinsey & Company.
