Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has appointed Eivind Vethe as business development manager in Norway.
His appointment coincides with the opening of a new Bergen office to extend Pulse’s presence in the Norwegian market and enable the company to offer enhanced local support.
Based in Bergen, Vethe will be responsible for building new business and managing existing sales accounts for Pulse’s products and services in Norway, with a particular focus on the drilling, completions and workover market. He will also work with the marketing and technical teams to develop a new product strategy and align product development with market and customer requirements.
Vethe has a BSc in automation from Bergen University College and has more than 12 years of experience in the subsea arena at Framo Engineering in various positions and projects. He joins Pulse from One Subsea, where he was area sales manager with responsibility for sales and marketing of multiphase measurement systems in Norway and Denmark. He also has experience in the Brazilian market. Vethe will be able to call on support from the Acteon group companies based in Stavanger.
Brian Taylor, Pulse account manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said, “Eivind brings a wealth of experience to this role. His appointment and the opening of our sixth office mark another step in our continuing global expansion. The North Sea is a strong market for Pulse and having a permanent presence in Norway will help us develop what we see as key future growth opportunities.
“With this appointment, we will build on recent successes in the Norwegian drilling market, stay close to an expanding client base and develop a presence in the growing production riser and mooring line monitoring markets.”
