Erlend Sodal has resigned from his roles as operations director for Skretting Group and managing director of Skretting Norway and Australia.

After working with Skretting for 25 years, Sodal will pursue new opportunities outside the company, said Skretting in a release.

“Erlend has made a significant contribution to Skretting and the aquaculture industry over the years," said Skretting CEO Therese Log Bergjord.

"We wish him every success for the future.”

Finance Director of Skretting Norway Håvard Walde has been Erlend’s deputy for the past eight years and will take the interim position as general manager of Skretting Norway to ensure a smooth transition for the company.

Melissa Abbott will continue as general manager for Skretting Australia, and will now report directly to Log Bergjord.
