Ann Kristin Syversen

Innovative and energetic Retail Curator.

Hello, I’m an Upscale Retail Curator who is driven by three key values: innovation, problem solving, and efficiency. I have spent two decades in the industry, successfully leading an array of store teams by leveraging strategic business management tactics that consistently yield exceptional results. I’ve also facilitated in building brand awareness, while gaining extensive sales and distribution experience.

My passion began when I was at kids nursery at six years of age, selling other kids’ toys and creating a counter out of a cut tree. Every week, we were allowed to bring some of our own toys, and I convinced my teachers that I had something very important to do outside the fence. From there, I then convinced my peers that I could earn them actual money and started my own “business.” At that point, I realized my talent for this sort of thing, and haven’t stopped ever since (nor do I plan on it).

As the proud Founder of Piece by Ps, I am dedicated to pivoting both people and products in the forefront of the  Scandinavian lifestyle and furniture industry, resulting in high turnover performance via non-traditional channels. I also provide advocacy for creative minds to implement tactful actions that ensure their very best work is showcased. Ultimately, my mission is to not only build a go-to, top-tier company, but to totally revolutionize the upscale retail industry as we know it. I’m deeply knowledgeable but I’m also infinitely passionate about what I do. Unapologetically so.

Also: Having fun while doint it!
