Ben Hadfield will take over as managing director with overall responsibility for MHS feed and farming operations. He will also continue as COO for the group's Feed Division.

"I and Marine Harvest are grateful to Alan for his long 19 years of service and very dedicated contribution to the building of the modern Marine Harvest Scotland," said Marit Solberg, chief operating officer farming at Marine Harvest.
