PGS said on Friday that the new president and CEO was Rune Olav Pedersen. According to the company, he will succeed Jon Erik Reinhardsen on September 1, 2017.

PGS chairman Walter Qvam said: “With the appointment of Mr. Pedersen, PGS will get a CEO with deep knowledge of the company and industry and with strong execution capabilities. We look forward to working closely with Mr. Pedersen in the time to come.”

Pedersen has worked in PGS for seven years and comes from the position of executive vice president and general counsel.

In this position, he has been responsible for corporate development, strategy, communication, legal, marketing, strategic customer relations, and compliance.
