Ove comes from the position as Business Development Manager at Hofseth BioCare ASA, where he has for the past four years been engaged in business development and sales of marine ingredients derived from salmon, such as salmon oil, hydrolyzed salmon protein and calcium from salmon bones, in addition to finished products such as Brilliant Salmon Oil for pets – which has developed rapidly in recent years – and is now present in more than 30 markets globally.  as well as being the No. 1 fish oil product at Amazon UK.

Prior to this, he worked as a sales consultant at Mars Multisales Nordic AS, selling a comprehensive portfolio of products, such as for example the petfood brands Pedigree and Whiskas to National retail chains in Norway.

Ove looks forward to contributing with his background and expertise, and together with the rest of the team at Nordic Seaco further develop existing and explore new business areas in the future.

We are very happy to welcome Ove, as we have been down in terms of capacity for some time now. We are sure we will develop lots of exciting new business together, both with existing and new customers. Ove had a desire to move more towards the fishing industry, and we will help create the conditions for that desire! We are very much looking forward to having him on the team and welcome him to Nordic Seaco, says general manager Hogne Worren.
