Until the summer of 2013, Lindvig will continue to work on a number of strategic tasks aiming at securing A2SEA's continued position as a leading supplier of installation services for the offshore wind business.
Martin Huss has been employed in A2SEA since May 2012, but holds an extensive knowledge of the offshore wind business from his time in Vestas (1996-2002) and SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy) (2007-2010).
Huss was previously employed in A2SEA from 2002 to 2007, when he was head of sales and marketing.
"We have known for a while that Kaj Lindvig had plans of retiring from A2SEA during the summer of 2013 and we have therefore had good time to find a replacement for Kaj in the CSO position" says Jens Frederik Hansen, ceo of A2SEA and continues, "We have looked for a successor who possessed both the sales and market related experience which this position requires, but also a person with the right knowledge of the wind business in specific. After a thorough search we decided that Martin Huss, who has previously held the sales responsibility in our company, is the right man for the job.
Simultaneously with the change of cso, the Sales and Marketing department changes its name to "Clients & Markets". The new name symbolises A2SEA's increased focus on selected customer segments and key accounts in addition to a sales focus on A2SEA's individual business units - installation and service/logistic as well as cable laying who is handled through A2SEA's subsidiary,
