Ceona Appoints New CEO

UK-based subsea constructor Ceona announced Tuesday that it has appointed Mark Preece as the new Chief Executive Officer.

Preece previously held the position of Ceona Executive Vice President – Commercial and Business Development. He will be taking over the role of CEO from Steve Preston, who has decided to retire after 40 years in the industry.

Ceona Chairman John Smith commented in a company statement:

"We are sorry to see Steve go and extend our best wishes to him for the future, and look forward to Mark building on the foundations he has laid. Mark is a highly-experienced industry figure who has been involved with the subsea market for over 32 years. We believe he will be well placed to lead Ceona through what is an extremely challenging market environment for the industry as a whole."

Commenting on his new role, Mark Preece said in a Ceona release:

"Working with Steve has been great and he leaves some big shoes to fill. But with the team’s support, especially Chief Operating Officer Stuart Cameron, who has been fundamental in getting the company this far, and despite the strong head winds, I feel optimistic for the future."
