“Tom Harald has headed up Umoe Mandal for seven years and been an important part of the company’s positive development in recent years. The board believes, however, that a management change and renewal is required to further develop the company and capitalize on the many opportunities ahead, especially within renewable energy and the defence industry,” says Jostein Eiesland, chairman of Umoe Mandal and CEO of the Umoe group.
Anders Nybø becomes temporary CEO of Umoe Mandal with effect from 19 June 2023. Nybø was CEO of Umoe Mandal from 2010 to 2013 and was subsequently a member of the company’s board of directors from 2013 to 2019. He has in recent years been the CEO of Faun Gruppen, which is one of Norway’s leading manufacturers of holiday cabins.
“Anders already knows every nook and cranny of the company as well as most of the many talented people at Umoe Mandal. We are very pleased that he was available to lead the company during a transition period until a permanent CEO is in place,” says Jostein Eiesland.
Umoe Mandal’s board of directors has commenced the process of finding a permanent CEO.
Tom Harald Svennevig has headed up Umoe Mandal since 2016.
– The board wants to thank Tom Harald for his efforts over all these years and wish him well for the next step of his career, Jostein Eiesland concludes.
