Fish Farmer - - World News -

FER­NANDO Vil­lar­roel, COO of Cer­maq Canada, is leav­ing Cer­maq to take up a new post as gen­eral man­ager of Marine Har­vest in Chile af­ter work­ing abroad for 10 years.

He has been with Cer­maq for 19 years and ‘has been very im­por­tant for the com­pany, not only in Canada but also for the global op­er­a­tions’, ac­cord­ing to CEO Geir Molvik. ‘It is with re­gret that I have ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion from Fer­nando Vil­lar­roel,’ said Molvik.

Vil­lar­roael (pic­tured), who will re­main COO in Canada un­til the end of April, said: ‘It has been a priv­i­lege to work for Cer­maq Group for al­most 20 years.

‘Leav­ing the com­pany was one of the most dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions of my pro­fes­sional ca­reer but as a fam­ily we have de­cided that it is time to re­turn to Chile.

‘I leave Cer­maq at a point in time when the op­er­a­tions in Canada are sound, there is a strong or­gan­i­sa­tion in place and the re­sults are best ever.’

At Marine Har­vest Chile, Vil­lar­roel re­places Per-Roar Gjerde, who will take over as the firm’s COO farm­ing for Nor­way and Chile.
