Monday, July 03, 2006
Martinus Brandal, former Executive Vice President of Aker ASA assumes the role of president and CEO of Aker Kvaerner, succeeding Inge K. Hansen. Hansen joins Aker ASA as a consultant to the group's management.

Martinus Brandal joined Aker in the summer of 2004, and has held a number of Board positions at Aker Group companies. He is very familiar with Aker Kvaerner as a result of being a board member of the company and assisting in developing the strategy that the company has followed in the last two years. He will continue to serve as a board member of Aker Yards. Prior to joining Aker, Brandal was in charge of the Process Automation business area of the ABB industrial group and he has extensive international oil and gas experience. The planned succession of former CEO Inge K. Hansen was announced in March 2006. Under Hansen's leadership, Aker Kvaerner has developed rapidly and well. Aker Kvaerner's 2005 record-high profit, alone, demonstrates how much the company has improved.
