Fjord Shipping CEO to take Viking Supply helm

Swedish offshore support ships operator Viking Supply Ships AB (VSS) has appointed Trond Myklebust as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company.

Viking said on Tuesday that Myklebust would also act as CEO in Viking Supply Ships A/S, a Norwegian subsidiary of the Swedish company, and will take over the responsibilities as CEO in both companies from January.

Myklebust is currently employed as CEO of Fjord Shipping AS. He is experienced in the offshore industry, most notably from his position as Managing Director of Bourbon Norway and ship broker and General Manager within Seabrokers. He was also the Managing Director of Kongsberg Evotec and, according to VSS, has a long career as Chief Officer and Master within the Norwegian Coastguard and Remøy/Havila.

To remind, the company’s chairman of the board Bengt A. Rem was appointed as interim CEO of Viking Supply Ships AB in September replacing Christian Berg who stepped down from the position. Folke Patriksson was then appointed the chairman for as long as Rem is the interim CEO.

The appointment of Myklebust now means that Rem will be reinstated as chairman of Viking Supply Ships AB and that Patriksson will return to his previous position as deputy chairman.

This announcement comes a month after Viking Supply Ships managed to conclude its financial restructuring in November which provided the company with a stable financial platform until 2020.
