Styrk Bekkenes, President of Palfinger Marine, has stepped down from his position.
“With the strengths that lie within the company, both in terms of personnel and products, Palfinger Marine is very well positioned to be the preferred supplier of cranes, lifesaving equipment and winches for vessels and installations worldwide. I feel that the time is right for me to step down and seek new challenges,” said Bekkenes.
Coming from the role of CEO of Harding Safety, Styrk has been the President of Palfinger Marine since January of this year. Prior to this he was part of a leadership-sharing arrangement in Palfinger Marine following the acquisition of Harding in 2016.
