Cermaq CFO steps down

After almost 10 years with the Cermaq Group, chief financial officer Thomas Palm has announced his intention to leave the salmonid producer to seek new opportunities.

“It has definitely not been an easy choice, but after many, very exciting years in Cermaq, I want to try myself in a new industry and a new company. It has been very motivating to work with so many competent and nice people in Cermaq and I will miss all my good colleagues in all parts of Cermaq and Mitsubishi,” he said in a statement.

Palm joined Oslo, Norway-headquartered Cermaq as a senior analyst in business development in 2010, moving on to Cermaq Norway as a business developer in 2013. He was then finance director in Chile for a six-month period, before returning to Norway in 2014 to become CFO of Cermaq Norway. In 2016, at the age of 33, he became CFO of the Cermaq Group.

“Thomas has contributed a lot to the Cermaq we are today. Although I would prefer to see him continue here, I understand that he wants to extend his experience to other sectors, and I wish him good luck in the future,” Cermaq CEO Geir Molvik said.
