Alejandro Canales has extensive maritime experience and previously held the position of general manager at the industrial, logistics and port service provider Ultramar.

“From my role, my main objective is to actively contribute to the success and development of the company, seeking to provide competitiveness to our clients, anticipating and satisfying their needs in a long-term relationship. Intership not only owns a very modern fleet, but the ships have also been built to the highest industry standards,” said Canales.

Canales’ first main focus will be on “Inter Fiord’s” acquisition, the company wrote,

“We are very pleased that Mr Canales has joined our team and we firmly believe that he is the right person to help us continue our growth within the Chilean market,” said CEO Ole Peter Brandal.

“We were lucky to get him, he’s a really experienced guy,” Brandal told SalmonBusiness. “The vessel will be arriving in Chile the second half of July,” he confirmed.

Following the “Inter Fiord” acquisition, Intership’s total fleet capacity will increase to 11,000m3, with vessels operating in Norway, Chile, Scotland, Iceland and both the East and West coasts of Canada.
