2014 was the first full financial year of the DNV GL Group AS (DNV GL) following the merger between DNV and GL. “While both managing the ambitious merger and maintaining a full focus on providing premium service to our customers, we also increased our revenues by 10%, achieving an operating revenue of NOK 21,623 million,” says Henrik O. Madsen, DNV GL Group President & CEO.
The ambitious integration of two global companies, DNV and GL, was a complex achievement, successfully carried out by the 16,000 employees. DNV GL has during this merger manifested its leading positions in the global Maritime, Oil & Gas, Energy, Business Assurance and Software Industries. Organisationally, the company now operates from a common platform out of 380 locations and has operations in over 100 countries, offering a broader range of quality services.
“In ‘year one’ - 2014 - we operated as one merged company, but we also celebrated our 150-year history of safeguarding life, property and the environment. Today, we are in great shape and have the competence and resource base required to provide guidance and support to our customers in a complex business environment where the need for technical expertise, trust, governance and risk management is clearly evident,” says Madsen.
