Ceona says that the company’s executive vice president commercial and business development, Mark Preece, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Mark takes over from current CEO, Steve Preston, who after 40 years in the industry has decided to retire from operational management and step down. Steve has worked tirelessly to establish Ceona as a key subsea player over the last three years, having been a prime mover and overseeing the construction of the company’s purpose-built flagship, Ceona Amazon.
John Smith, chairman at Ceona, said: “Steve is an inspirational leader who has worked with our teams to develop the strong building blocks for our business. His dedication to seeing the Ceona Amazon come to fruition, combined with his passion for innovation, saw him lead the project from design concept right through to the successful launch of the next generation, hybrid field development vessel, on time and on budget.
