Atlantic Sapphire managing director of Denmark operations steps down
Atlantic Sapphire has confirmed that Ole Christian Norvik, managing director of the company’s operations in Denmark, has stepped down.
Following Norvik’s departure, the company has internally hired Ole Spicker to “run the day-to-day operations in Denmark,” Atlantic Sapphire’s Sustainability, Community Engagement, and Press Manager Lola Novarro told SeafoodSource.
Norvik stepped down from the company for “personal reasons,” according to Navarro.
“We want to use the chance to thank Ole Christian for his great contributions to Atlantic Sapphire and wish him all the best in the future,” she said.
The COO of Atlantic Sapphire and head of Atlantic Sapphire Denmark, Dharma Rajeswaran, is continuing on in the position, she added.
“We are very glad that we have built up a strong organization in Denmark over the last few years, that allows us to promote internal and local talent and to give opportunities for growth to people within our team,” Navarro said.
The company was recently on the short-list for the European small- and mid-cap awards, which promotes small- and medium-size enterprises in Europe that have gained access markets via initial public offerings.
The company is also planning a large land-based salmon facility in Miami, Florida, U.S.A.. That facility is currently on track to have its first harvest of market-weight salmon in July as it completes phase one of the project.
