BioMar presents new executive structure

June 6 2016


The BioMar Group presents a new executive team in continuation of the launch of their new corporate strategy "Shaping the Future".

The new Executive Committee will consist of Carlos Diaz, CEO, Mogens Stentebjerg, CFO, and three Vice Presidents: Jan Sverre Røsstad, Ole Christensen, and Henrik Aarestrup.

"I am very confident that the new team will enable us to strengthen our position as a locally responsive, agile, and specialized aquaculture feed provider. It will consist of highly skilled executives with a strong management background, a solid understanding of the aquaculture business, and complementary profiles", Carlos Diaz says.

Carlos Diaz will during an interim period personally take the lead of the Salmon Division, however Jan Sverre Røsstad, BioMar's current Vice President for the North Sea region will immediately become more involved in BioMar's Chilean operations in order to start creating a stronger link between BioMar's two largest market areas in Chile and around the North Sea.

Ole Christensen will head the new EMEA Division, which will succeed BioMar's current Continental Europe region where he was also at the helm. Previous to that Ole Christensen headed R&D for BioMar Continental Europe and he has a very broad experience covering all aspects of the feed business from sourcing and product development to commercial management.

Henrik Aarestrup will move from the position as Global Marketing Director for BioMar to the position as Vice President for BioMar's Emerging Markets Division. Henrik Aarestrup has, besides his function at the head of marketing, been deeply involved in the development of business plans and strategies for several BioMar companies around the world. With a strong knowledge of the entire BioMar organisation combined with a long experience in international management his role will be to link the emerging markets to the rest of the organisation and create the necessary push to succeed in these markets.

Mogens Stentebjerg, BioMar's long-time CFO, continues in the Executive Committee.
