Story Behind Odinbrook

How the wisest god in Norse mythology, the Swedish word for “current” and two ravens have come to signify a brand renowned for helping companies confidently restore financial stability.

After three decades in the investment banking and financial services industry, Odinbrook founder Steven Strom wanted to take his vast experience and collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to the highest possible levels. He started Odinbrook, named in part for a mythological figure revered for his relentless quest for wisdom, and in part to pay homage to the Swedish translation of his last name.

According to legend, the Norse god Odin was so tenacious in his pursuit of knowledge that he plucked out one of his eyes as a sacrifice for wisdom. His two ravens, named Hugin and Munin (meaning “thought” and “mind,” respectively), were his eyes and ears. They’d fly around the world each morning to collect information and insights, which they whispered to Odin while sitting on his shoulders.

Ravens are also known to be extremely intellectual creatures. Further, they’re harbingers of impending transition and transformation. It’s said that when a raven flies into your life, it’s time to probe deeply and look within to seek answers and effectuate change.

This is what Odinbrook seeks to do: Through strong leadership and a wealth of global industry insights, help companies find the answers they need to recover financially.

With creative problem-solving and openness to new thinking, the possible ways for clients to win enlarge exponentially. Odinbrook’s optimistic mindset and flexible approach enable you to be proactive instead of reactive … to think strategically and act opportunistically.
