It is with our heart full of sorrow that we announce that our dear friend and colleague Ole Jungshoved passed away.

He was one of the critical pillars of the entire Cannon Group, becoming the first agent outside Italy in the 70s. The year 1969, when Ole met Cannon’s co-founder Carlo Fiorentini during a fair on polyurethane, marked the beginning of a long-lasting partnership, laying solid foundations for the internationalization of the entire group.

Since 1970, he founded and directed Nortec-Cannon, the first agency dedicated to the North-European market. Ole’s lively intelligence, simplicity, and ability to identify new opportunities contributed significantly to developing new markets and boosting Cannon’s growth.

“His criticism and proposals have certainly made us better. His excellent speeches and irony pushed us to think about ourselves and made us feel united and part of an international family. – Dr. Marco Volpato, President of Cannon, said. – He was a “giant” for Cannon and a personal friend and will be deeply missed.”

The entire Cannon Group joins in the grief of Ole’s family for their loss.
