ASRY, a ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, has appointed Nils Kristian Berge, the current Commercial General Manager, as Acting Chief Executive, to succeed Chris Potter, who leaves the company in October 2013. The ASRY Board of Directors confirmed the transition has been planned for several months in order to ensure a smooth and seamless transfer of responsibilities.

Shaikh Daij bin Salman Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ASRY commented, “With new expansions and diversifications now completed and integrated at the yard under Mr. Potter’s valued guidance, ASRY is now positioned for a new phase of progress, which Mr. Berge is ideally suited to spearhead. With over 25 years of international maritime experience and detailed insight into the workings of ASRY over his time as Commercial General Manager, our ambitious plans for the yard will be in capable hands.”

Mr. Berge said, “I intend to streamline the yard’s efficiency, lead it to greater stakeholder value, and consolidate its reputation so that it remains a source of pride for the Kingdom of Bahrain and Arabian Gulf.”
