Chilean salmon farmers appoint social worker as communities director
Experienced communicator draws on knowledge gained with Multi X
SalmonChile, a trade body representing fish farmers and players in the salmon farming value chain, has appointed a communities director to strengthen the sectors relations.
Felipe Díaz is a social worker from the Silva Henríquez Catholic University, with a masters degree in Social Policies and Community Mediation from the University of Barcelona.
Previously, he was deputy manager of communities and sustainability manager at salmon farmer Multi X, where he worked on various strategies for the development of the company in community relations.
A deeper link
“I am very happy to be able to take on this new challenge as communities director at SalmonChile,” said Díaz.
“For years I have seen how the organisation has worked together with its companies with various interest groups, in the regions and sectors where we operate. The idea is to continue deepening this linking and articulation work with our companies, to continue contributing to the development and well-being of southern Chile.”
SalmonChile president Arturo Clément said: “For us it is important to be able to continue strengthening our regional work, and we believe that Felipe is a person who will help us to continue consolidating our territorial strategy of linking with various interest groups, which undoubtedly has many challenges.”
SalmonChile’s communications capability will also be strengthened with the creation of a media content unit, which will be headed by Francisco Renner as its director.
“We are convinced that the industry with its entire value chain has a lot to communicate, as an organisation we want to show the economic and social contribution of salmon farming in different ways,” he said.
