Norway’s GCE Subsea has elected Jon Arve Sværen as its new chairman of the board of the subsea cluster.
Sværen is currently employed as VP Business Strategy Processing in OneSubsea.
“I am humble, yet proud of being asked to take the position as chairman of the GCE Subsea board,” Sværen says. “I am convinced that subsea technology has a bright future despite the current downturn in the industry. Subsea technology will be required to optimise oil production from the many challenging field developments and tail-end production of mature fields in the world.”
“The nomination committee has, in my opinion, put together a very experienced Board with extensive subsea and business expertise,” says Owe Hagesæther, CEO at GCE Subsea.
