21/10/19 - Gustav Witzøe will take over as CEO of SalMar on October 21, 2019. Today's CEO Olav-Andreas Ervik will be the new CEO of the newly formed subsidiary SalMar Ocean AS, with the main responsibility for the company's investment in sea-based fish farming.
So far, SalMar's focus on offshore farming has been a business area for which Gustav Witzøe has been responsible. This business is now merged into a separate subsidiary Ervik has wanted to lead.
Both Witzøe and Ervik point out that the change ensures continuity of management, and that it is a natural consequence of SalMar's ambition to lead the development of offshore farming.
