ONE of the most experienced players in the international aquaculture sector is to become the new chief finance and chief operating officer of salmon farming giant SalMar, the Norwegian company that owns 50 per cent of Scottish Sea Farms.
Trine Sæther Romuld (pictured) will take up her post at the beginning of July. She replaces Trond Tuvstein, who announced his resignation before Christmas after six years with the business.
Romuld has extensive experience from a broad range of management positions within seafood, consulting and auditing, from both Norwegian and international companies.
SalMar CEO Olav-Andreas Ervik said: ‘I am very pleased to get Trine as part of our team. Her experience from the seafood industry combined with her broad experience from growth companies are qualities that suits very well with our ambitions in the company.’
A state authorised accountant from the Norwegian School of Economics, Romuld has worked with a number of financial capital management, industrial and seafood businesses during what has been a varied career.
She entered the fish farming industry when she joined Panfish, which became Marine Harvest (now Mowi), rising to become the group’s chief financial officer.
She later became deputy chair of Aker Seafoods, before moving to accountants Arthur Anderson and Ernst & Young. Her other companies have included the Faroese salmon farmer Bakkafrost and the white fishing company Havfisk, now part of the Lerøy group.
