EMGS CEO steps down

Norway’s Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA’s Chief Executive Officer, Bjarte Bruheim, has decided to step down, with immediate effect.

He has held this position since January 7, 2015, and before that, he held the position as the company’s executive chairman since 2004.

EMGS said it has initiated a search for a new CEO. Furthermore, until a permanent CEO is in place, Stig Eide Sivertsen has been appointed new CEO.

The company said that, as the CEO cannot be a member of the board of directors, according to the Norwegian Public Limited Liability Companies Act, Sivertsen has voluntarily resigned as board member with immediate effect. Sivertsen has served on the Board and chaired the Company’s audit committee.

He has previously, among others, worked for Schibsted ASA, Petroleum-Geo services ASA and Telenor ASA.

“With the current low prices on oil, EMGS faces new challenges that require the company to take action. We are confident that Stig Eide Sivertsen is the right person to lead the company until a permanent solution is in place,” says the chairman of the board, Eystein Eriksrud.

“As the oil and gas industry is experiencing difficult times, it is even more important to provide the best solutions to our customers and to scale the operations to fit customer demands to maintain profitability. I look forward to take on the role as CEO to develop EMGS together with our highly qualified team,” says CEO, Stig Eide Sivertsen.
