Odfjell executive Bjorn Kristian Roed has been lured away from the tanker company to start a new challenge at Havfram.

The Oslo-listed owner’s vice president of corporate analysis and investor relations will become chief financial officer of the Norwegian offshore vessel owner from 1 November.

“After a lot of consideration, I reached a conclusion to resign from my position in Odfjell this summer,” Roed said in an email to contacts.
