AGR Gets New CEO and CFO

AGR, a provider of well project management and subsurface solutions to the upstream oil and gas industry, has made internal promotions to appoint new CEO and CFO.

The current CEO, Åge Landro, moves on to a new role after 11 years with AGR.

Svein Sollund, part of AGR’s executive team for eight years, is appointed new Chief Executive Officer. He will also take on responsibility for AGR’s business in Norway as Sjur Talstad, EVP for Norway and Russia, leaves to take up a new vacancy externally.

Snorre Woll, previously head of AGR’s finance team for seven years, is moving into the role of Chief Financial Officer.

Olav Fjell, Chairman of the AGR Board of Directors, commented: “Mr Sollund joined AGR in 2008 and became COO in 2012. He has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills in his roles and the Board looks forward to working with him as he drives the business forward around the world.”

The regional leadership teams in Norway, the UK, Asia Pacific, Americas, UAE and CIS continue to have responsibility for managing AGR’s business locally.
