Alf-Helge Aarskog, CEO of Mowi, stepped down. Aarskog has been CEO of Mowi since July 2010 and has been instrumental in positioning Mowi as the world’s leading seafood company. Some of the key achievements during his leadership have been the creation of Mowi’s own fish feed operations, significant growth in value-added processing, substantial farming volume growth and most recently, the launch of the company’s branding strategy. During this period, Mowi has delivered stellar shareholder returns.
“Alf-Helge has transformed Mowi to a leading product-driven seafood company, with industry leading positions in Genetics, Feed, Farming, Sales and Consumer Products. The strategic choices made over the years have turned Mowi into a strong company with a focus on developing the salmon category. Aarskog is a true salmon farmer, and he has spread enthusiasm and passion for salmon throughout our global organization,” said Ole-Eirik Lerøy, chairman of the board.
Ivan Vindheim was appointed as new CEO of Mowi ASA. Vindheim has been Mowi’s CFO since 2012. He has extensive experience from the seafood industry and has held various executive positions including being the CFO of Lerøy Seafood.
