Grieg Seafood has taken further steps to strengthen its marketing team by recruiting five new faces from other operations and fish farming companies.
The company says it wants a stronger downstream team so it can position itself from being largely a supplier of salmon to a company that can become an innovation partner for selected customers. Kathleen Mathisen HR director at Grieg Seafood said:
‘We are going to need forward leaning people who want to build something new’.
It was a few months ago that Grieg, which has significant operations in Shetland, said it planned to build up its own fully integrated sales and marketing organisation in order to best deliver on the company’s business strategy due to get underway early in the New Year.
The five new faces are:-
Carl Johan A. Sandberg, who becomes Value Chain Director. He has many years experience in seafood and is currently group quality manager at Ocean Quality.
Helene Andrea Gerde Lund, who becomes Team Leader Europe. Helene also comes from Ocean Quality and has five years experience in the industry.
Anita Wahlvag has been appointed sales and logistics co-ordinator and has worked in similar roles with SalMar for a number of years.
Tom-Erik Thorgersen becomes Business Controller Sales and is joining Grieg from Mowi where he has spent the past eight years where he has been working in the management of raw materials and Trade Europe for some of that time.
Sindre Ramsevik Kvalheim is to take up the post of senior account manager. He is also moving over from Mowi where he has spent the past six years.
