Glex appoints new CEO


Glex steps up the game with a new CEO

Our ambitious team at Glex kicks into overdrive when we team up with Andrew McCann as the new CEO of the company. McCann comes from a recent position as Senior Vice President Subsurface at OKEA ASA, and will start his journey with Glex on February 1st 2024. He will succeed founder Jørgen Engen Napstad, who will take the position as Glex’s CTO.

Andrew McCann has over 25 years of experience, including technical and business leadership positions, in Statoil/Equinor from 1997 and OKEA from 2019. He has mainly worked on the Norwegian Continental Shelf but also has international experience from holding the positions of Head of Petroleum Technology Brazil and Country Manager for Libya, whilst in Equinor. He holds a PhD in Geology from the University of Cambridge, UK.

- Glex has developed unique software services which cover several urgent needs in the energy industry. It has been fascinating to follow the company’s development over the last years and I am really excited to join Glex at a time where the focus is going from development to growth, aiming to significantly increase the company’s income in the coming years, McCann says.

Jørgen Engen Napstad is also looking forward to the next phase for Glex:

- It is with great pleasure and pride that I am stepping aside as CEO of Glex, and handing over the baton to Andrew McCann. Andrew has extensive experience and unique expertise in the energy sector, which makes him very well positioned to take Glex forward.

Napstad will continue in the role of CTO, with overall responsibility for technology and product development. This will allow the team to work more dedicatedly on continuing the development of the Glex Energy platform to become the preferred collaboration platform for energy companies.

In the past year, the company has increased the number of customers considerably, and during the second half of the year the company gained several new key customers.
