Flex LNG, an emerging player in the LNG shipping business, appointed Harald Gurvin as a chief financial officer of Flex LNG Management, the main management company of the Flex LNG group.
Gurvin is expected to join Flex LNG in January 2019, the company controlled by billionaire John Fredriksen said in its statement.
He has served as a chief financial officer of NYSE-listed Ship Finance International since March 2012. From 2008 until 2012, Gurvin served as senior vice president at Ship Finance.
Prior to joining Ship Finance in 2006, he spent seven years with the global shipping group of Fortis Bank in Oslo, focusing on shipping and offshore finance.
Speaking of Flex LNG, Gurvin said, “with a fleet consisting of thirteen next-generation vessels, Flex LNG is uniquely positioned to capitalize on a market with strong underlying fundamentals due to the ongoing shift from coal to natural gas as well as the substantial reduction in freight costs offered by the new modern LNG carriers.”
Flex LNG currently has nine LNG carriers under construction in addition to the four vessels already on the water.
