Last year, Aker Solutions established a business segment dedicated to the energy transition, such as low-carbon solutions and projects for renewable energy. Marianne Hagen has been appointed executive vice president for sustainability and communications. She will be part of the executive management team and accountable for the strategic development of sustainability across Aker Solutions.
Marianne Hagen has held senior positions in politics, public affairs, communications, social responsibility and environmental issues. Previous roles include deputy minister of Foreign Affairs in Norway, head of communications at the Norwegian Royal Court and several board of directors positions. She will start in her new position on March 15, reporting directly to Kjetel Digre, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. Hagen succeeds Tove Røskaft, who has left Aker Solutions to take up her new role as Chief of Staff and Business Excellence at Aker Offshore Wind. By 2025, the company’s objective is that one third of the revenue should come from low-carbon oil and gas projects or from renewable energy business. By 2030, the objective is that this will count for two thirds of the revenue.
