AquaChile, Cermaq, Mowi and Salmones Aysén formed the new organisation to unite industry initiatives last month.
In a press release, the Chilean Salmon Council writes that Joanna Davidovich Gleiser has been named as new executive director.
The group of CEOs was formed with the “aim of joining efforts to develop a sustainable industry, connected with authorities, communities and continuing respect for the environment.”
Sady Delgado represents AquaChile, Steven Rafferty speaks for Cermaq Chile, Fernando Villarroel flies the flag for Mowi Chile, and Pablo Baraona is there for Salmones Aysén.
Economist Davidovich has experience in economic analysis and public policy design and in her professional life.
She has held Chilean government positions such as Director of the Competitiveness Office for the Ministry of Economy, Executive Director of the Productivity Commission of the Confederation of Production and Trade, Chief of Staff for the Ministry of Economy and Chief of Staff for the Ministry of Public Works.
Currently, she is the Vice President of the Board of Directors at the Port of San Antonio. She has also participated as board member of institutions such as Abastible and Empresa Portuaria Valparaíso and the Chilean Society of Public Policies.
“Joining the Salmon Council, which brings together the world’s largest companies in terms of salmon farming, is a great challenge. Currently salmon is the second largest export product in Chile, it has many attributes and a tremendous potential. We have the opportunity to place the Chilean salmon industry as a world leader, respecting and promoting the best sanitary, health, regulatory and environmental practices, “said the new Executive Director.
The directors of council said they are sure “that the experience and capacity of Joanna Davidovich will be essential to contribute to the mission of the Council which is the competitive and sustainable development of the Chilean salmon industry and thus contribute to the development of the country”.
