Rune O. Pedersen

Crisis management – some reflections from leading PGS

During his 5 years as CEO of PGS ASA, Rune Olav Pedersen has experienced what it's like to lead a company in a highly volatile industry. He has seen the stock price rise from 14 NOK to 40 NOK, only to fall 94% from its peak during the pandemic.


The stock price is now well above 10 NOK, and PGS remains as one of the four major international seismic companies after consolidation and bankruptcies in the industry. Their ships are now sailing into brighter times, and strong growth is expected in the industry for the first time in many years.


Rune will talk about how they handled the coronavirus pandemic and how to lead a company that is constantly exposed to crises. He has experience in managing uncertainty and multiple simultaneous crises. How does one prioritize correctly in a crisis situation while also seeing opportunities for the future through restructuring?

Global Resource Equities

To achieve the climate change targets set out in the Paris Agreement, a transition to a low-carbon world will be needed. In order to keep to these targets the entire energy and food and water value chain will need to be transformed. This requires monumental investment. As a result, capital will be redistributed on an unprecedented scale, with investment opportunities across many sectors and industries.


This is a long term, multi decade structural change, not a short term one and will create opportunities for companies to achieve strong, real profit growth, which translates into added value for shareholders.
