Mowi Scotland Head of Sales Georgina Wright departs
Salmon producer Mowi Scotland has confirmed that its head of sales, Georgina Wright, has decided to leave the business after 27 years’ service.
Wright, who will leave Mowi at the end of March, started her career with McConnell Salmon in 1994. The company then became Marine Harvest and is now Mowi.
“Mowi’s evolution toward an integrated value chain has enabled our company to be ‘first-mover,’ which has helped lead the way on many key developments in Scotland. These have included sourcing vegetable oils as a partial replacement of fish oil and being the first Scottish salmon company to export to mainland China,” Wright said. “Mowi holding the Royal Warrant of Appointment for the supply of fresh Scottish salmon – a 600-year-old tradition that approves merchants to supply goods and services to the Royal Household and the right to use the Royal Arms in connection with their business – is something I’ve been very proud to be a part of.”
Most recently, Wright chaired the Scottish Salmon Industry Brexit Working Group, bringing together all Salmon Scotland member companies to ensure the industry was best prepared for the complications of Brexit.
“Mowi’s successful export of the first truck of Scottish seafood into the E.U. on Saturday, 2 January, 2021, as Brexit dawned has been a more recent highlight for sure,” she said.
Mowi Managing Director of Raw Materials and Trade Andreas Soraa wished Wright “all the very best for the future.”
“I have worked with Georgina for several years and, while I am sorry to see her depart, I would like to thank her for the dedication, commitment, and passion she’s brought to her role and to Mowi,” Soraa said.
