DNV Retools Units' Leadership

The group has more than 10,000 employees and offices in 100 countries. The U.S. presence is 1,700 employees, and in China it has more than 1,200 employees.

DNV announced that as of March 1, its operations will be carried out through three separate companies: DNV Maritime and Oil & Gas, DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability, and DNV Business Assurance, with each company in the DNV Group having a dedicated leadership team. CEO Henrik O. Madsen becomes CEO of the group.

The group has more than 10,000 employees and offices in 100 countries. The U.S. presence is 1,700 employees, and in China it has more than 1,200 employees.

"Historically, DNV has been strongest in the shipping industry, and this is still true today. Our solid base in the maritime industry has allowed us to branch out into the oil and gas sector, where we now have a firmly established presence. From there, we have expanded into cleaner energy and built up our work in certification. Now we are further expanding into the fields of power generation and transmission, gas distribution, and sustainable energy use by joining forces with KEMA," Madsen said.

DNV Maritime and Oil & Gas has its headquarters in Oslo, Norway, with CEO Remi Eriksen in charge. Eriksen is the current COO of DNV's Asian operations. Tor E. Svensen continues as president of DNV Maritime and Oil & Gas. DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability, headquartered in Arnhem, the Netherlands, provides services covering the entire energy value chain from energy source to end user. Its chief is Thijs Aarten, the current CEO of KEMA.

DNV Business Assurance, with headquarters in Milan, Italy, has operated as a separate legal entity in DNV since 2010. A leading certification body, its leader is Luca Crisciotti, the current director of operations of DNV Business Assurance, Division Asia and Australia. For more information, visit www.dnvba.com.
