Bjørn Jalving has been appointed as Executive Vice President of Kongsberg Maritime’s Subsea division and a member of the Kongsberg Maritime management group, effective 1st January 2012. Jalving succeeds Rolf Arne Klepaker, who is moving to a role working with strategic projects in Kongsberg Maritime.

His deep knowledge of cybernetics and subsea technology in general, in addition to his personality and leadership skills will support the Subsea division and Kongsberg Maritime going forward.
