Equinor Selects Torgrim Reitan As New Chief Financial Officer
Norwegian oil and gas giant Equinor has appointed Torgrim Reitan as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and executive vice president with effect from October 6, 2022.
Reitan succeeds Ulrica Fearn who has decided to leave the company to pursue a CFO opportunity outside the company. Fearn will be available to secure a good handover to her successor until further notice.
“I am very pleased to welcome Torgrim back to the Corporate Executive Committee. Torgrim has a very strong background to take on the complex challenge as CFO in Equinor, as we progress our ambition to be a leading company in the energy transition. In the current energy crisis, it is a definite strength to have Torgrim in my top management team, with his experience as CFO, from our upstream business, from trading and operations of natural gas, and lastly from the acceleration of growth in our renewables business,” Anders Opedal, president and CEO of Equinor, said.
“I look very much forward to joining the CEC and to work closely with Anders and his very strong team in handling the current energy crisis while using my broad experience contributing to driving the momentum in our transformation towards net zero in 2050,” stated Reitan.
