Changes in MH top management team

MARINE Harvest Group has announced changes in its top management team following the decision by long serving executive Marit Solberg to retire.
Solberg, who has worked for the company for more than three decades, was COO Farming Canada, Scotland, Ireland and the Faroes.
The company has decided to return to its original management team structure of having one COO farming position with global responsibility, appointing Per-Roar Gjerde.
Gjerde (pictured) has been COO Farming for Norway and Chile since January 2017. Born in 1967, he is a graduate from the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH), and has completed executive management courses at Solstrand in Norway and Insead in France.
He has extensive experience within salmon farming and sales, said Marine Harvest. He started his career as a salesman with Domstein Salmon.
In 2002 Gjerde became controller for farming at Fjord Seafood Norway, which became part of Marine Harvest in 2006.
And in 2007, he was appointed regional director for Region West, one of the four business units of Marine Harvest Norway at that time.
In January 2016, he moved to Chile, was appointed managing director for Marine Harvest Chile and led the business restructuring process there.
Marine Harvest’s Group management team, effective from November 1, will now be:
CEO: Alf-Helge Aarskog
CFO: Ivan Vindheim
COO Farming: Per-Roar Gjerde
COO Sales and Marketing: Ola Brattvoll
COO Fish Feed: Ben Hadfield
Global Director R&D: Øyvind Oaland
Chief Strategy Officer: Glenn Flanders
Global Director HR: Anne Lorgen Riise
Communication Director: Kristine Gramstad Wedler
