Norway’s GC Rieber Shipping has shaken up its top executive team after chief commercial officer Christoffer Knudsen said in December that he will be leaving.

The Oslo-listed operation, which is moving into the offshore wind vessel sector, said chief financial officer Oystein Kvale will replace Knudsen from 1 March.

Knudsen resigned to pursue an alternative career opportunity after nine years, GC Rieber said last month

Kvale has been part of the management team since 2018 after joining the company in 2014 from Boston Consulting Group.
