Bruno Chabas, CEO, said: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Øivind to the Management Board. His nomination marks the quality of our pool of talent. Øivind has demonstrated his leadership over many years at SBM Offshore. By adding Øivind to the Management Board and with Philippe and Douglas taking a broader role as well, SBM Offshore is well positioned to deliver results in both our traditional business and strengthen our position in New Energies. I would like to thank Erik for his considerable contribution to SBM Offshore and in leading our commitment to do business with integrity.”
Erik Lagendijk said: “It is extremely satisfying to see that the Company has overcome its past issues and is now well positioned for the future. After 7 years on the Management Board, I welcome the change and the opportunity to hand over to the next generation.”
