Norway-based shipping firm Awilco LNG has appointed Per Heiberg as its new chief financial officer.
The move follows the resignation of Øyvind Ryssdal after nine years in the role.
Heiberg will start work at Awilco from April 6, the owner of two TFDE 156,000-cbm LNG carriers, said.
Moreover, he comes from the position as CFO in Golden Ocean Group. Heiberg served at Golden Ocean for 15 years including the roles of risk manager and vice president finance.
Awilco chief executive Jon Skule Storheill said Heiberg’s “long and varied experience from the financial side of shipping will no doubt be an asset for the company going forward.”
