He will replace Klaus Hatlebrekke for a brief period.
Hatlebrekke’s involvement as interim CEO of Norway Royal Salmon (NRS) expires on Monday 25 April, with him now returning to his previous position as COO for business development in the company.
Charles Høstlund, who was CEO of NRS from 2014 to September 2021, has been appointed as the new interim CEO from 25 April, according to a statement released on Monday.
“I have agreed to lead NRS in an interim period, and it is exciting to be back with the company. I look forward to seeing many familiar faces in the coming weeks,” Charles Høstlund said.
“It is natural to make a change now in this phase for the company. Charles and I have worked together for many years, and I look forward to continuing this collaboration,” Klaus Hatlebrekke stated.
“I would like to thank Klaus Hatlebrekke for the time being interim CEO,” newly appointed chairman Paal E. Johnsen added.
