Stoknes joined Aker Solutions in 2007 and was named CFO in September 2014. He has previously held “numerous key positions” in the company, according to Aker Solutions.

"I am delighted to welcome Ole Martin to the team as our new CFO," Luis Araujo, Aker Solutions CEO, said in a company statement.

"His strong performance here at Aker Solutions shows he is well-suited for the role, and I know he will become a good addition to the executive management team,” he added.

"It has been a real pleasure to work with Svein over the last five years. Svein created a lot of value for Aker Solutions and we wish him all the best in his new position with Aker ASA," Araujo continued.

Aker Solutions engineers the products, systems and services required to unlock energy, according to its website, which shows that the company employs 15,000 people. The company, which traces its roots back to 1841, is headquartered in Fornebu, Norway.
