Harkand named Ben Gujral as the group’s new chief financial officer (CFO), replacing interim CFO Deborah Stevenson who was brought in to lead the company through the early stage of its expansion. Harkand was launched in February 2013 through the merger of Iremis, Integrated Subsea Services, and Andrews Survey following investment by Oaktree Capital Management. Harkand acquired Veolia Marine Services in August 2013. In his previous role as CFO at Mood Media, he helped increase the company’s enterprise value from USD 200 million to USD 1.2 billion, raised more than USD 1 billion in financing, and managed its mergers and acquisition strategy across four continents. He also held the group CFO position at Transcom Worldwide and DCS Group.
