Oslo: Classification society DNV GL has appointed Remi Eriksen (pictured) as its new CEO. He will take over from Henrik Madsen, who is retiring, on August 1.
Eriksen, currently COO of the merged class society, has been with DNV GL for the last 22 years. Madsen’s tenure as CEO saw him preside over the merger of Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and Germanischer Lloyd (GL) in 2013.
DNV GL chairman Leif-Arne Langøy commented: “Eriksen has a deep knowledge of our core markets and on key industrial technologies. Not least, he has demonstrated a proven ability to anticipate challenges in the industry.”
The DNV GL announcement is the second class succession news this month. Richard Sadler has recently announced he will step down as CEO of UK class society, Lloyd’s Register, to be replaced by the society’s CFO, Alastair Marsh.
