Pål Adrian Hellman is President of the Finance Sector Union of Norway. Hellman said of his re-election:
”I am proud of NFU’s role in the Nordic financial market. Our sectors are going through the biggest changes since modern times began, and it is imperative that unions in the Nordic financial sectors cooperate.”
