Eikrem takes roles of Kvaerner EVP, CFO

Idar Eikrem has been appointed executive vice-president and chief financial officer of Kvaerner ASA.

He will be supported by Eiliv Gjesdal, who currently holds the same positions, in a period until his notice period ends, the firm says. Gjesdal steps down Apr. 6, and will work on “special tasks” until his notice period ends June 30.

Eikrem has experience in a variety of top management positions, including financial management and turnaround processes. He was executive vice-president and chief financial officer of Aibel until 2014, and has also held management positions overseas for the same company.

Gjesdal began as chief financial officer when the company was demerged from Aker Solutions in 2011.
