AQUA­CUL­TURE vet­eran Steven Raf­ferty has been ap­pointed the new man­ag­ing direc­tor of Cer­maq Chile, it was an­nounced last month. He joins the com­pany - which he last worked for as chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer farm­ing be­tween 2008 and 2010 - from Lon­don based Global Mar­itime.

The Scot was man­ag­ing direc­tor of Skret­ting Global Salmon and Fish Feed South­ern Europe un­til Septem­ber 2017, based in Sta­vanger in Nor­way, and a mem­ber of the Nutreco ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee.

Raf­ferty pre­vi­ously worked for Marine Har­vest in the 1990s, with roles in Scot­land, Chile and the US, rising to chief farm­ing of­fi­cer in 2005.

He re­mained with the com­pany when it was ac­quired by Nutreco (Skret­ting’s owner), later join­ing Nutreco in 2012, af­ter it had sold Marine Har­vest.

Raf­ferty, who lived and worked in Chile for six years, said: ‘I very much look for­ward to lead Cer­maq’s op­er­a­tions in Chile.

Cer­maq CEO Geir Molvik said Raf­ferty, who takes up his post in Puerto Montt, on June 1, was ‘def­i­nitely the right per­son for this task, bring­ing with him broad knowl­edge from the in­dus­try’.
