Paul Norling is retiring and will be replaced by current Deputy Chair Sir Rob McLeod.
In a press release, Paul Norling has formally advised the Sanford Board – one New Zealand’s major producers of king salmon – that he will retire from the position of Chairman and as a Director of the company
The Board has elected Sir Robert McLeod – currently the Deputy Chairman – to replace Norling.
Norling commented: “During my tenure as Chairman, it has been a pleasure to see the company on a voyage of transformation, as it focuses on being a producer of branded seafood and other value-added marine-based products of substantially higher value, rather than selling into the international commodity markets, as it had done in the past.”
Sir Robert said he also felt privileged to be asked to lead the Sanford Board of Directors: “The company has an exciting future which the Board and management are committed to realising,” he said.
