One of DOF’s board members has resigned in anticipation of taking a leading role at competitor.

The Oslo-listed offshore specialist declined to identify Britt Mjellem’s new employer when contacted by TradeWinds but a related securities filing suggests the split was amicable as the company thanked her for contributions tied to a run that lasted nearly a decade.

Following the director’s departure the board will include incumbents Helge Mogster, who passed the chairman’s torch to Helge Singelstad in May, Oddvar Stangeland, Wenche Kjolas and newcomer Karoline Mogster.

According to a Linked In profile, Mjellem was with DOF for more than seven years and still serves on the board of Seabed Services. For the past four months she worked as a consultant after a brief tour with MDE Consultants and a three-year stint with Amesto People.
