Lee Buchheit who led the Icesave negotiations has just been chosen as ‘Man of the year’, in business, by the daily Frettabladid (owned by Jon Asgeir Johannesson). Buchheit was chosen by a committee of thirteen business people and academics for his outstanding work on Icesave.
Number two on the list is the CEO of CCP, the computer game company that created Eve Online, Hilmar Petursson. Number three is Jon Thorsteinsson CEO of Marorka, a company based on his idea, specialised in marine energy management solutions. Both companies are brilliant examples of business creativity – Iceland would be better off with more people like Petursson and Thorsteinsson.
