Egil Haugsdal follows Geir Haoy as President of Kongsberg Maritime. Haugsdal holds extensive leadership experience from KONGSBERG, and currently heads Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies. He has previous experience from KONGSBERG as Executive Vice President of Business Development and as President of Kongsberg Protech Systems

- I am delighted with the confidence I have been given. After seven years as part of KONGSBERG’s corporate management team I know both the company and the strategy well. Kongsberg Maritime is a solid company with leading international positions, and I look forward to further development of the company together with skilled employees in Norway and internationally, says Egil Haugsdal.

- I am pleased that I will be handing over the role of President of Kongsberg Maritime to Egil Haugsdal. After several years of cooperation in the corporate management team I have developed great respect for Egil’s capacity and experience. Egil has achieved good results and knows Kongsberg Maritime well, says Geir Haoy, current President of Kongsberg Maritime.

- Egil has had a key role in the restructuring of the Group’s oil and gas businesses, and I am very pleased that he now will assume the responsibility of heading KONGSBERG’s largest business area, Kongsberg Maritime. We are entering times characterized by both great opportunities, but also challenging market conditions. Egil knows KONGSBERG and our industries very well, and I am confident that his more than 30 years of industrial experience, the last 20 in KONGSBERG, makes him the right person to lead Kongsberg Martime going forward, says CEO of KONGSBERG, Walter Qvam.

Egil Haugsdal will assume his new position as President of Kongsberg Maritime after a short period of overlap with Geir Haoy. As previously announced, Geir Haoy will assume the position of CEO of KONGSBERG in June 2016.
