Mr Muri will leave his post with effect as of today. He thanked the company but said now was the right time to let someone else take on the challenge of developing AKVA further.
In a post on the Oslo Stock Exchange this morning, he said: “After serving as CEO for three years, I believe it is time to pass on the leadership of AKVA, and let others take on the challenge developing AKVA further.
“AKVA is a great company with a strong position, and potential for the future. I would like to thank the Board of Directors, the management team and all the employees for the time I have had in the company, and I wish them all the best for the future.”
The company announced that the chairperson of the board of directors, Knut Nesse, will resign from his role to take up the post of interim CEO.
Hans Kristian Mong takes over as chairperson. He said: “AKVA has grown strongly and gone through a positive development the last three years, and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Mr. Muri for his continued dedication and hard work in this period.”
