Apr 16, 2024 - Stock Exchange Release

Oslo, 16 April 2024: Hexagon Composites (OSE: HEX.OL) today announces that Jon Erik Engeset will step down as Group President and Chief Executive Officer. The Company will shortly commence a search process. Engeset will continue as CEO until the position is filled, following which he will continue to support the company in an advisory role.

"After 11 years at the helm, Jon Erik Engeset has decided to step down," says Knut Flakk, Chair of the Board of Hexagon Composites. "Under his management the Group has undergone significant transformation.
