Haugan leaves Kvaerner , takes over as CEO of Aker Energy
Chairman of the Board, Leif-Arne Langøy. Jan Arve Haugan comments:
“With the emergence of Aker Energy, a new exciting opportunity materialized. In my opinion, it is a good time to hand over the torch to others. The company is solid. Kvaerner’s biggest strength is its 2 700 employees, a fantastic group of people, a solid corporate culture and two well-run facilities at Stord and in Verdal”.The Board of Kvaerner has engaged an executive search company to assist in finding the right successor to further develop Kvaerner.
“We will evaluate both internal and external candidates. Until a new leader is in place, Idar Eikrem will be the interim CEO”, says Chairman of the Board, Mr Langøy. Idar Eikrem (55) joined Kvaerner in April 2016 as Executive Vice President & CFO. He has comprehensive experience from a variety of top management positions, including financial management and turn-around processes. He holds a M.Sc. in economics and business administration from the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration in Bergen, Norway and is state-authorized public accountant.
