GSE Systems Names Steven Freel Chief Operating Officer

GSE Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GVP), a global energy services solutions provider, has appointed Steven Freel to Chief Operating Officer, a previously unfilled position, effective January 1, 2013. Freel will be responsible for all U.S. operations except for training, which remains under the direction of Phil Polefrone.

Freel has been with GSE for 16 years, most recently as Chief Technology Officer. He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University and an MBA with a focus on business strategy from the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland.

“We are deploying a number of our seasoned executives into new roles, allowing them to become truly global assets for GSE,” said Jim Eberle, Chief Executive Officer of GSE. “They will work in a spirit of collaboration to develop, propose, and implement energy services solutions that will allow us take advantage of significant growth opportunities in multiple regions of the world.”

In addition to Mr. Freel’s appointment, Graham Wren will assume expanded responsibilities with the new title Managing Director of GSE’s operations in Europe. Jean-Marc Holt has been named Senior Vice President of Global Business Development, where he will focus on South America and Africa. Thomas Carlsson replaces Holt as Managing Director of GSE Power Systems AB in Sweden. All of the changes become effective January 1, 2013.

“These changes put GSE in the best possible position to succeed globally,” continued Mr. Eberle. “To that end, GSE President Chin-Our Jerry Jen has taken a special assignment in Asia focusing on maximizing our Chinese joint venture GSE-UNIS and developing strategies for South Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam. Together these changes give us experienced, senior leadership in areas that we’ve targeted for growth.”
