At the same time, Håvard Jørgensen, will be promoted from global R&D director to managing director in Norway.
BioMar said in a press release this morning that both men, who will assume their new responsibilities from January 15, had ‘delivered remarkable business results in other executive management positions’.
Campbell, previously a head of global R&D within BioMar, has helped established the company in Australia, and is currently overseeing the construction of a feed mill in Tasmania.

Jørgensen, said BioMar, has ‘a very solid insight in to the Norwegian industry through his R&D work within salmon’.
BioMar CEO Carlos Diaz said: ‘I feel very fortunate that we have been able to allocate two very strong executive profiles to support our focus on the salmon division.
‘The salmon division comprises a very important part of our business and we consider the division a vital driver of our innovation and sustainability efforts.
‘I look very much forward to continuing the positive development of our products and services within the world of salmon.’
The current vice president of the salmon division, Jan Sverre Røsstad is leaving BioMar Group after 12 years heading the Norwegian business unit as well as the salmon division. He will support the new management through a transition period to ensure a smooth handover.
