Flex LNG Ltd., together with its subsidiaries, has announced the appointment of Harald Gurvin as Chief Financial Officer of Flex LNG Management AS, the main management company of the Flex LNG Group. He is expected to join Flex LNG in January 2019.
Gurvin brings extensive shipping, finance and capital market experience to Flex LNG. He has served as Chief Financial Officer of NYSE listed Ship Finance International Ltd. since March 2012.

Harald Gurvin comments:
“I am very much looking forward to joining the Flex LNG team at an exciting time for both the company and the LNG shipping industry in general. With a fleet consisting of thirteen next generation vessels, Flex LNG is uniquely positioned to capitalise on a market with strong underlying fundamentals due to the ongoing shift from coal to natural gas as well as the substantial reduction in freight costs offered by the new modern LNG carriers.”
Øystein Kalleklev, CEO, comments:
“Flex LNG is very pleased to announce this CFO recruitment. Harald is probably one of the CFOs with the best performance and reputation in the shipping industry with a proven track record in this industry for close to 20 years. Harald brings valuable expertise and experience to Flex LNG at a period of time where we are scaling up activity with nine modern LNG carriers currently under construction in addition to the four vessels already on the water.”
