SeaBird Appoints New Interim CEO

SeaBird Exploration board of directors has named Gunnar Jansen to the position of interim CEO, effective immediately.

Gunnar Jansen replaces Hans Petter Klohs, who has informed the board of directors that he will leave his position.

Jansen joined SeaBird as chief commercial and legal officer in August 2018 and has 20 years’ experience from the shipping and offshore industries.

He has served in senior management positions in several offshore and shipping companies and has extensive strategic, commercial, and operational experience across segments, particularly seismic source and OBN.

Jansen holds a BA degree in economics and international studies and master degrees in jurisprudence and maritime law.

Hans Petter Klohs has served as a board member since 2015 and later as CEO.

“The board takes the opportunity to express its thanks on behalf of the company to Hans Petter for his services to the company, and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” SeaBird said.
