Kongsberg Automotive appoints interim CFO

By Graeme Roberts | 16 August 2016

Martin Hogganvik (38) has been appointed interim CFO at Kongsberg Automotive with immediate effect, responsible for all finance and IT functions at the supplier.

He has been vice president finance at Kongsberg since 2012 with responsibility for reporting and accounting within the company. He previously served in various finance functions at Heegh Autoliners and as an auditor at Ernst & Young.

Trond Stabekk, previous CFO, resigned in May after accepting a new position outside the company. He had a contractual notice period of six months before the process to identify his successor would be initiated, hence the interim appointment.

Stabekk had been CFO since February 2006. 

Kongsberg in June appointed chairman Henning Jensen as CEO though he was to resign from the board.

More recently, Jensen was CEO of RHI of Austria and Kistefos of Norway.

Bruce Taylor was named to replace Jensen as chairman.

Taylor had a 16-year career at Eaton Corporation where he was SVP & group executive, Automotive.
