International accredited registrar and classification society DNV GL has announced that Jon Fredrik Baksaas has been appointed the Vice Chair of its Board of Directors.

The Norway-headquartered classification body said in a press release that Baksaas started his working career in DNV in 1979 and worked in Norway and Japan until he left DNV in 1985.

He went on to work in Stolt-Nielsen and Aker and topped his executive career with more than 25 years in Telenor - the last 13 as CEO and President until he stepped down in 2015.

Baksaas has served 12 years as a member of the DNV Council. He succeeds Morten Ulstein, who is standing down from the board.

The company currently has about 14,500 employees and 350 offices operating in more than 100 countries, and provides services for several industries including maritime, renewable energy, oil & gas, electrification, food & beverage and healthcare.
