New boss for Cermaq Canada
CERMAQ Canada has appointed David Kiemele as managing director, with effect from April 29.
Kiemele joined the company in May last year and has more than 17 years of experience in the industry, having worked in British Columbia and Tasmania.
He started with Marine Harvest Canada, spending five years in marine production, before joining Tassal in Tasmania in 2005.
There, he held the positions of regional manager, general manager and, for the last six years, head of farming, reporting to the CEO.
Since May 2016, he has been Cermaq’s regional production manager, overseeing the marine production and processing operations in Tofino.
Cermaq CEO Geir Mol- vik said: ‘We are proud that we found the best candidate for managing director internally. David has already made a significant contribution in Cermaq, and I am confident he is the right person to build our operations in BC.’
