Odd Brevik is new Chairman of the Board at WestshoreCompany News // June 15, 2012
Shipbroker Westshore has engaged a well-respected name in the Norwegian offshore industry as Chairman of the Board.
Odd Brevik started his career in the offshore sphere at Parley Augustson/Balder Management in 1982. After the bankruptcy in 1985 the remains of the company were purchased by Brøvig/Mosvold and moved to Farsund, now trading under the name Supply Service.
Mr Brevik followed the vessels to Farsund. In 1988 he combined forces with Christen Sveaas to create Viking Supply Ships.
He continued as Managing Director of Viking until his firrst retirement in 2000, looking after the standby boat fleet and barges after they sold their supply vessels to Sævik Supply in 1998. He also contracted three newbuilding Arctic vessels that still operate today.
During his career Odd has been involved with a number of the big names in the industry. He made a comeback in 2005 with the founding of Deep Sea Supply after
the purchase of six vessels from Tidewater and thereafter the acquisition of 22 newbuilding contracts from Sea Tankers.
In 2010 he retired for good, but has maintained an active coverage of the market since that time.
"His experience in the industry will be well utilized during board strategy sessions, and we look forward to his contributions to Westshore," said the company.
