Andreas von Scholten, CEO of Singapore-based Barramundi Group, will be joining Permira-owned Taiwan feed giant Grobest after he hands over his leadership reins at the barramundi farmer in January.

Speaking today at Barramundi Group's third quarter investor presentation, von Scholten said he would be joining Grobest in a "commercial role."

Von Scholten has been CEO at Barramundi Group for just over three years. Before that he was general manager Asia Pacific and head of global marketing at aquaculture vaccination company Pharmaq for almost five years.
