IFFO, the Ma­rine In­gre­di­ents Or­gan­i­sa­tion, has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of a for­mer Cargill and Ewos ex­ec­u­tive as its new di­rec­tor gen­eral.

Nor­we­gian Pet­ter Martin Jo­han­nessen re­places An­drew Mal­li­son and will take up the post from Septem­ber 3 in IFFO’s Lon­don head­quar­ters.

Jo­han­nessen was pre­vi­ously global busi­ness di­rec­tor for Risk and Man­age­ment Sourc­ing at Cargill and, be­fore that, sup­ply chain di­rec­tor and global sourc­ing and pur­chas­ing lead at Ewos.

While at Ewos, he worked closely with IFFO and pre­sented on be­half of the feed sec­tor at the IFFO an­nual con­fer­ences.

Jo­han­nessen has also worked at PWC and Kavli Hold­ing. He holds a diploma in in­ter­na­tional mar­ket­ing and a de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from the Nor­we­gian School of Man­age­ment. He has also stud­ied petroleum econ­omy, eco­nomics and sci­ence at the Univer­sity of Ber­gen. IFFO pres­i­dent Ed­uardo Goy­coolea wel­comed the ap­point­ment say­ing:‘The IFFO board is thrilled to wel­come Pet­ter to the IFFO fam­ily.With his ex­ten­sive man­age­rial ex­pe­ri­ence in strate­gic and pro­cure­ment roles, Pet­ter’s work with multi stake­hold­ers across our in­dus­try, and his al­ready close re­la­tion­ship with IFFO, will make for a win­ning for­mula in this im­por­tant role.’ Jo­han­nessen said:‘I am ex­cited to be join­ing such a pro­fes­sional or­gan­i­sa­tion and work­ing with the IFFO team in sup­port of this fas­ci­nat­ing and dy­namic in­dus­try. ‘IFFO’s in a unique po­si­tion by rep­re­sent­ing a di­verse cross sec­tion of busi­nesses from the aqua­cul­ture and an­i­mal feed in­dus­tries. ‘I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing An­drew’s legacy.’ Mal­li­son leaves in July and will re­lo­cate to the US in his new role as the Global Aqua­cul­ture Al­liance’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, tak­ing over from Wally Stevens.
