PG Flow Solutions has promoted chief operating officer (COO) Steve Paulsen to chief executive officer (CEO).

Mr Paulsen, who joined the company as its first COO in 2015, succeeds Roy Norum, who moves into the role of executive vice president of sales & business development. The change is part of a long-term succession plan which was mapped out in 2014, when Norvestor VI, L.P. became the majority owner of PG Flow Solutions.

“Having worked closely with Roy for the past three years, I know how demanding the CEO role is. But we have planned this change since 2015 so it is great to finally make it happen," said Mr Paulsen.

He added: “PG Flow Solutions is a fantastic company and I look forward to leading this highly capable team. Having Roy continue in such a vital role is also a major advantage, both to PG and in support of my new function."

Harnessing expertise

Prior to joining PG Flow Solutions, Mr Paulsen spent almost a decade with Siemens, as head of operations within energy, oil & gas solutions, head of global sales & project execution, and head of sales & regional support. He has also spent several years in project director roles for Nokia Siemens Networks.

Mr Norum has been with PG Flow Solutions for 18 years, and spent more than 40 years in PG’s core business segments globally. He is a significant shareholder of the group, and will continue as a senior member of the group’s management team.

He said: “Sales and business development has always been closest to my heart, so I look forward to dedicating myself to this role full time. The maritime and oil and gas industries have been through a couple of challenging years, but we are finally seeing signs of recovery in these markets. In addition, we are rapidly expanding into new sectors, such as the aquaculture and fisheries segments. This positive momentum is something we aim to capitalise fully on.”
