Olsen to step down from Norges Bank

Øystein Olsen

Øystein Olsen will step down as the governor of Norway’s central bank next February, a year before his second term is due to end.

Norway’s government appointed Olsen to two six-year terms as the governor of Norges Bank beginning in January 2011.  ”There is a time for everything,” Olsen said in a statement published by Norges Bank on August 26.

“In January next year I will turn 70 years of age,” Olsen said in his statement. “This is a natural time to round off a long professional career.”
