EIVA Names Pedersen Chairman
The Board of Directors of Danish EIVA a/s is headed by Flemming Bligaard Pedersen as of January 14, 2014. With the appointment of the new Chairman, the offshore service and equipment provider prepares to further strengthen its business in the light of the growth it has seen in recent years.
Pedersen has technical understanding and many years of management experience from a career that has included involvement in the offshore industry. For nearly 20 years, he was part of the top management of Ramboll that specialises in engineering in the construction, transport, environment and energy markets. With CEO being his most recent position, Mr Pedersen contributed significantly to the strategic development of the company.
Under Pedersen’s management, Ramboll grew from being a primarily Danish company with 800 employees to an international concern with close to 10,000 employees and more than 200 offices in 21 countries. Among other initiatives, this included establishing activities in the offshore sector.
Pedersen became member of the Board of Directors of EIVA in 2012. Consequently, he already has a thorough understanding of the company.
The growth of EIVA is exemplified by relocation of the company headquarters to new and far larger premises as of 1 January, and a booming product and software road map for 2014.
