Christian Chramer has been appointed the new CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Council.
Chramer joins the organisation following a seven-year stint at the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise, where he held regional director, communications director and area director roles. He succeeds Renate Larsen, who resigned in February.
He will return to the Norwegian Seafood Council where he was previously communications director and fisheries envoy in southeast Asia. In addition, he had a 13-year service career in the Norwegian Army.
“We are very pleased to welcome Christian Chramer as the new CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Council,” said Amund Drønen Ringdal, deputy chairman of the board and chairman of the NSC appointments committee. “His broad management experience and strong communication skills will help to lift the Seafood Council further, and we look forward to an exciting collaboration in the future.”
Chramer will take up the role on 1 October, but in the meantime Børge Grønbech will work as acting CEO.
He expressed excitement about taking on the role and said: “I look forward to working with skilled colleagues in the Seafood Council and the companies working in one of Norway’s most important export industries.”
“Our goal is to further develop the strong position that Norwegian seafood has globally by ensuring that a growing world population to an even greater extent opens its eyes to healthy and sustainable seafood,” added Chramer.
