Norway-based salmon producer Grieg Seafood has appointed Grant Cumming as its new chief operating officer across its North American operations.

Cumming led the turnaround of Grieg Seafood’s Shetland operations before the region was sold in 2021.

“Grant does not only have extensive strategic and operational experience from the salmon farming industry - he also knows Grieg Seafood well and shares our values," said Grieg CEO Andreas Kvame. "We were impressed with how he led the restructuring of our Shetland business, turned it into a profitable region and oversaw a successful sale in 2021."
