DNV GL coo Remi Eriksen to succeed Henrik Madsen as ceo

DNV GL coo Remi Eriksen to succeed Henrik Madsen as ceo
Remi Eriksen, current DNV GL coo will become group president and ceo when Henrik Madsen retires on 1 August after nine years at the helm.

Erisken, a 22-year veteran at the company, beat a crop of male and female candidates from a number of nationalities, including internal and external aspirants.

Leif-Arne Langøy, chairman of DNV GL's board commented: “Eriksen has a solid track-record in leading positions within the company for two decades. He has gained extensive international experience in the oil & gas, maritime, and renewable energy industries, and has led our operations in Asia, Europe and the Americas.

"In addition to his strong performance in managing the integration of DNV and GL, Eriksen has deep knowledge of our core markets and key industry technologies. Not least, he has displayed an acknowledged ability to foresee industry challenges and drive responsive solutions.”

Eriksen said: “I believe the future will be characterized by a very complex and fast-changing world and a period of slower global growth. However, the world economy is still on track to more than double in size over the next 40 years. I see a future where trusted independent parties are increasingly needed to enable safe and responsible business performance and sustainable value chains. In this context, DNV GL’s innovation capabilities, as well as our role as a standard setter and driver of joint industry collaborations, will be an increasingly relevant strength."

Praising the outgoing president and ceo, Langøy added: “As Henrik Madsen is retiring after more than 30 years of service with us, the last nine years as group President & ceo, I want to sincerely thank him for his commitment and extraordinary achievements in heading the company towards the world-leading positions we are in today.”
