The chief financial officer of Aker Solutions has announced plans to leave the company less than a year his appointment and without a replacement being found.
Ole Martin Grimsrud, who became CFO in June 2019, has “given notice that he will leave the company September 1, 2020 to pursue other opportunities”, the Norwegian firm said in a statement.
Mr Grimsrud will stay in the role during his notice period or until a replacement is found, Aker said.
His predecessor, Svein Oskar Stoknes, spent six years as CFO.
In February, before the Covid-19 pandemic was fully felt, Aker shares fell to a record low on a warning that 2020 revenue would dip 14% due to supply chain pressure as a result of the 2014 downturn.
Then during its Q1 results in April, the firm fell to a £65m loss and warned that the second quarter would be “one of the most uncertain and disruptive quarters our industry has been through” due to the oil price crash and Covid-19.
Aker Solutions is due to report on its Q2 results on July 15.
