Engebretsen piped aboard at Bergen

Pål Engebretsen has been appointed as executive vice president of the Bergen Group, which has just announced a clutch of new contracts.

The Bergen Group said in a statement that Engebretsen will act as CEO when CEO Roger Simmenes is not present and that he has been appointed to bolster top management in the company.

“Strong growth in orders in the offshore and the shipbuilding segments, and at the same time a need for synergy extraction, has generated a need for extended competence in top management. Engebretsen`s experience is very relevant for our tasks going forward,” said Simmenes.

Engebretsen was previously CEO of Fosen Yards and has been the main architect behind the large and successful restructuring of the company during the last two years, Simmenes said.
