Basili to stay on as permanent CEO at Shearwater GeoServices

Irene Waage Basili has been appointed to the position of CEO at marine geophysical company Shearwater GeoServices on a permanent basis.

Basili temporarily left her post as CEO of GC Rieber Shipping to act as interim CEO for Shearwater when it was formed in October 2016. Shearwater is a joint venture between Norwegian heavyweights GC Rieber Shipping and Rasmussengruppen.

Basili will resign from her position as CEO of GC Rieber Shipping on April 1.

Paul Christian Rieber, chairman of GC Rieber Shipping, commented: “The board of GC Rieber Shipping would like to thank Irene Waage Basili for solid contributions during her six years at the helm of GC Rieber Shipping. We wish her good luck with new responsibilities and we are very pleased that she will continue to work in Shearwater and thus will still be in close contact with GC Rieber Shipping.”

Einar Ytredal will continue to serve as acting CEO until GC Rieber recruits a permanent CEO.
