Ingvar Vilhjálmsson, who will work from Iceland, is a former chief executive of Ægir Seafood in Iceland and head of capital markets for Kaupthing Bank.
Skaginn 3X said his experience in seafood processing and finance makes him an invaluable resource for clients as a new regional sales manager for Europe.
Ágúst Ágústsson, who has a background in sales for another processing machinery maker, Marel, will work from Sweden.
“Part of what sets Skaginn 3X apart is how closely we work with the industry, which is why we are so proud to bring these two seasoned professionals on board,” said Ingólfur Örn Guðmundsson, director of business development for Skaginn 3X, in a press release.
“Their outstanding accomplishments and extensive knowledge of the technical and operational intricacies of this sector will be a great benefit for Skaginn 3X in building lasting relationships with our clients in Sweden, Iceland and elsewhere in Europe.”
