Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) has appointed Johannes Tveit (pictured), currently head of the company's service department, as acting GM/EVP, replacing Odd Gunnar Kleppe who has stepped down from the role which he held since March 2019.

Kleppe played an important role in the merger between Norwegian Control Systems (NCS) and NES, and in building an organisational structure, competence, structures and tools that have given the company a strong foundation for delivering high-quality products to its customers. With Kleppe at the helm, NES developed and delivered new products and services in energy optimisation and control and established itself as a leading supplier of zero emission solutions for ferries and other vessel types.

NES’s priorities in the time ahead will be to realise its ambitious goals and strategies for continued growth and development with new products in existing and new market segments. Kleppe says that the company is now set to enter a new phase, and that the top manager will need a different type of expertise, so Kleppe wishes to make his position available to a someone who can focus more on the company’s further commercial and strategic development.

Tveit has worked for NES since 2012, and prior to heading the service department he held the positions of project manager, head of products and technical manager.  The work of recruiting a permanent EVP will commence.
