Oslo-listed Flex LNG, the shipping company controlled by billionaire John Fredriksen, named Øystein M. Kalleklev as a chief executive officer of Flex LNG Management.
Kalleklev has served as chief financial officer of Flex LNG Group since October 2017, the company said in a statement.
Kalleklev will also continue to serve as chief financial officer until a suitable candidate have been identified and recruited to this position.
Flex LNG added that Marius Foss has also joined the company as head of commercial.
Foss comes from a similar role at Golar LNG and with these changes, the board has increased its focus on building a team around the company’s LNG carrier fleet, and given the market outlook, transportation of LNG will be the company’s core focus going forward.
