We are glad to announce that our management team has two new appointments.

Nikolaj Hojberg Stald, Vestas’ former director of offshore sales for the UK & Ireland, joins Føn Energy Services as chief commercial officer (CCO), while Marius Strand starts as chief digital officer (CDO).

At Vestas Hojberg Stald (pictured, left) was director of offshore sales for the UK and Ireland, and senior sales manager.

He has also spent five years in various commercial sales and contract roles at Siemens Wind Power before it became Siemens Gamesa.

At Føn Energy Services, Hojberg Stald will be tasked to develop and execute the company’s commercial agenda within offshore wind and be overall responsible for existing and new client relationships.

“Nikolaj’s extensive experience from the offshore wind industry will prove highly valuable to both our clients and colleagues,” said Rahman Khanani, CEO of Føn Energy Services.

Strand (pictured, right) has helped organisations use digital tools and systems as a foundation for “driving significant operational gains”.

He has experience from Nordic media and internet company Schibsted, data analytics roles at EY, and from Norwegian Air Shuttle.

“We are seeking to industrialise and digitise the Operations & Maintenance (O&M) segment, thereby creating a streamlined O&M offering to the offshore energy industries.

“Marius will play a key role in unlocking this digital value for our clients,” added Khanani.

Føn Energy Services is owned by Oslo-listed industrial investment company Akastor, which has the Aker group as its largest shareholder, and Norwegian industrial group IKM.

Føn Energy Services is an independent service provider to the offshore wind industry and other energy sectors. The company offers integrated O&M solutions to developers, operators, sub-suppliers and owners of offshore renewables infrastructure, and in particular offshore wind farms.
