VARD also said on Wednesday that the Board of Directors had approved the appointment of Geir Ingebrigtsen, who is currently the Acting Chief Financial Officer, as the permanent Chief Financial Officer, effective November 10, 2015. Ingebrigtsen was named as acting CFO in May 2015 when the company was making organizational changes and a reshuffle of the Executive Management Team.

The company says that Ingebrigtsen will oversee the financial management and reporting of the Group.

The Audit Committee and the Nominating Committee have also recommended Ingebrigtsen’s promotion to the Board.
