Bergen Group ASA CEO Asle Solheim has agreed with the company to resign from his position by September 30, 2015.
Bergen Group noted that Solheim will be available for the Group throughout 2015, while the search for the new CEO takes place.
Asle Solheim took position as CEO of Bergen Group ASA in May 2013. The group has since then completed substantial structural changes, including the sale of the shipbuilding division last year and sale of the rig service activity at Hanøytangen this spring.
“These extensive changes have made necessary a strategic and operational assessment of the future corporate structure. In that context, it is rational for the Board to be free to also evaluate the CEO-position as a part of this process”, chairman Tor Lars Onarheim in Bergen Group ASA said.
Asle Solheim said: “When I was appointed CEO two years ago, it was partly to strengthen the focus on a new offshore related growth based on the established industrial area on Hanøytangen. Now the conditions for further growth have changed substantially. I therefore find it appropriate that the Board on a free basis also evaluate the management resources when defining the future strategy for the Group.”
