Scana finds new CEO

Scana Industrier has appointed the Chairman of the Board, Bjørn Torkildsen, as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company group.

Scana said that it has been searching for candidates with assistance from a professional recruitment firm and has concluded that Torkildsen is the best candidate to be the CEO of Scana.

According to the company, Torkildsen will resign as Chairman of the Board of Scana and take office September 1, 2015. The Board will hold an extraordinary general meeting on September 10, 2015, in order to elect a new Board in Scana.

The company notes that Bjørn Torkildsen has 25 years experience in the petroleum industry. He worked as Skangass CEO from 2009-2013 and Lyse Infra CEO from 2005-2008.

Jan Henry Melhus has been acting CEO from November 1, 2013.

“The Board will thank Mr. Melhus for his strong efforts through a very challenging period for Scana,” the company said.

Extended agreement with Converto

In addition, the board of the company has also approved an extended agreement with Converto, a Norwegian investment management and advisory firm. Converto has assisted Scana since April 2014 with a new strategy plan. Scana said that Converto will now support the CEO and the management with the execution of the new strategy plan for the company.

Regarding the agreement with Converto, the company said: “The board of Scana is pleased with the work Converto has performed for Scana, and is of the opinion that Scana has been strengthened with respect to accomplish the new strategy plan with the new CEO and the extended agreement with Converto.”
