Further to the divestment of the shipping assets of Oceanteam ASA (“Oceanteam” or the “Company”) active in the oil & gas segment, CEO Henk van den IJssel has decided to step down from his current position effective 1 August 2021.
Henk van den IJssel: “With my background in the offshore oil & gas construction business, one of my main tasks was the management and divestment of the shipping activities thereby paving the way for a different future for Oceanteam. These tasks have now been successfully accomplished and this therefore is a natural moment to leave the Company. I wish the Company nothing but the best in pursuing its new strategic objectives”.
The Board is appreciative of the efforts of Mr. van den IJssel and has initiated a recruitment process to find a suitable candidate to succeed Mr. van den IJssel.
