Linda Aase will take the reins at family-owned company in November


Linda Aase, who was chief executive of Scottish Sea Farms co-owner SalMar for just under six months last year, is to be the new boss of Norwegian salmon farmer Bremnes Seashore.

Aase will take over from current chief executive and main owner Olav Svendsen on 1 November, 2023.

Svendsen has worked in the family-owned group for over 50 years. Under his leadership, the company has become one of Norway’s largest privately owned farming companies with over 600 employees.

“We are pleased to have Linda on board and look forward to her continuing Olav’s good work,” said Jan Sverre Røsstad, chairman of parent company Bremnes Fryseri AS, in a press release.

Aase started as chief executive at SalMar on May 9 last year, and stepped down in October. She was replaced by Frode Arntsen, who has been with SalMar since 2017 as chief operating officer for sales and industry.
