NATO Boss Stoltenberg to Lead Norway’s Central Bank

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg becomes the new governor of the Norwegian central bank. Norway’s former prime minister is allowed to fill the post for which more than 20 candidates have applied.


The government in Oslo announced the appointment on Friday.

In December, Stoltenberg, 62, an economist, announced that the Ministry of Finance had asked him to apply for the top position. He has been the head of NATO since 2014. His current term as chief of the military alliance runs until the end of September.

The position will be released on March 1, but Stoltenberg will complete his second term with NATO. The bank’s deputy chief, Ida Wolden Bache, will be in charge until then. She was Stoltenberg’s main rival for the top position.
