The local former football player Jan Åge Fjørtoft is the man behind the Fjøraprisen, which is intended to be an appreciation for inspirers and motivators in the private business sector, teams and organizations, sports, and in the local environment. It`s the first time this award has been handed out, and this year the receivers were CEO at Larsnes®, Jarle Gunnarstein, and Hødd Fotball, by chairman Bård Dalen.

Jarle had worked continuously at the shipyard for 42 years and started his career at Hammer Shipyard in 1979 before he followed over to Larsnes® which was founded in 1981. He receives the award for his ability to create enthusiasm and optimism, and motivate others with his good mood and leadership. Larsnes® is one of the cornerstone companies in Sande Municipality and is now in an expanding phase with significant development, including a dock hall, new quays, as well as new and better facilities for its employees.

We congratulate our leader with Fjøraprisen 2022!
