Until 2018, Torvmark was CEO of Digital Radio Norway, the company which led Norway to become the first country in the world to conduct a Digital Switch-Over (DSO). He had a key role in the collaboration between commercial and public broadcasters and between the broadcasters, politicians and trade. After a complete digitisation of national radio broadcasting in Norway, Digital Radio Norway was shut down according to plan. Today Torvmark is Head of Product, Non-Automotive at Radioplayer Worldwide and Country Manager for Radioplayer in Scandinavia.
