The Board of Directors of Nofima Mat AS has appointed Camilla Røsjø as its new Managing Director.
Nofima is Europe’s largest applied research institute within the field of fisheries, aquaculture and food research. The research group employs around 500 people and has an annual turnover of NOK 500 million. The Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs is the majority shareholder. The company comprises four business divisions, of which Nofima Marin and Nofima Mat are the two largest.
Røsjø comes from the position of Managing Director at another company in the Nofima Group, Nofima Marin.
Camilla Røsjø lives in Oslo and is 47-years-old. She is educated as a nutrition physiologist from the University of Oslo, and later took a doctoral degree in fish nutrition at Akvaforsk.
She had different positions at Akvaforsk including scientist, director of research, head of administration and director.
After Akvaforsk became part of the research group Nofima, she has been Assistant Director of the business division Nofima Marin and since June 2008 has been the business division’s Managing Director.
"In Camilla, we are getting an experienced scientist and manager with an exciting background for the food industry," says Nofima CEO Øyvind Fylling-Jensen.
"I believe this will contribute to increasing the group’s potential to be a relevant supplier of research and knowledge to the fisheries, aquaculture and food industries. I am extremely happy that Camilla has accepted this challenge."
"It is important for me to set to work on new challenges in Nofima, and I see great opportunities for Nofima Mat in the future," says Camilla Røsjø.
"The position at Nofima Marin has been very exciting and rewarding, and I feel we have achieved a lot within a short space of time. But living in Oslo and working in Tromsø is demanding, so I am therefore looking forward to setting to work on an equally exciting job in Ås, but with a much easier route to work."
It has not yet been determined when Røsjø will start her new job.
"We are now starting the job of finding the right person for the Managing Director’s position at the head office of Nofima Marin in Tromsø, so we have to see how that goes," says Fylling-Jensen.
