Geoquip Marine has appointed Peter Østergaard Nielsen to its board of directors as a non-executive director.
Peter is a senior lawyer with Danish legal practice Bech Bruun and has extensive specific experience in international wind farm development.
In addition to his experience in international business transactions and his insight into the energy sector, Peter is particularly valued for combining his legal skills with a commercial and technical understanding of the projects in which he is involved, Geoquip explained.
He is the second non-executive director appointed by Geoquip Marine this year, following Jean-Luc Laloë, who joined in the early Spring.
Geoquip Marine’s chief executive officer Stewart Higginson said that the appointment of Peter Østergaard Nielsen to the board of directors is one of the latest chapters in what has been an extremely busy and highly successful period in the growth of the business.
Stewart Higginson added: “Also, to manage our existing growth and keep pace with the expansion of our service offering and number of secured contracts, we have promoted Hans Hanse to the role of chief operating officer. Hans embodies who we are as a company and his strong reputation in the market makes him ideally suited for this position.
“At the same time we have also commissioned McKinsey & Company as an advisor to make strategic recommendations to our board on both how we can maintain our rate of growth as well as the corporate development needed to ensure that we provide industry-leading services in all our key markets around the world.”
