Nordic Halibut will soon have a new CFO: Thomas Scheele Berg, a finance professional experienced in investment banking.

Berg is currently an investment manager at Fred. Olsen Investments, and brings to his new role in the aquaculture industry a background in mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets, and debt capital markets across a variety of industries, according to a press announcement by Nordic Halibut.

Nordic Halibut's new finance chief also holds a master's degree with a financial focus from the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH).

In its announcement, the company said that Berg's knowledge "will be influential in advancing our ambitious goals of scaling sustainable halibut production on an industrial level".

"We are delighted that Berg has accepted our offer," said Nordic Halibut CEO Edvard Henden.

"He will play a pivotal role as a key resource for the company, supporting our vision of sustainable halibut production. His experience will be a valuable asset as we progress forward."

Berg will begin his new role on August 1, 2024. He replaces outgoing CFO Kenneth Meyer, who announced he was stepping down from his position in January 2024. The appointment also follows another recent hire by the company, with Aina Røsseland brought in as Nordic Halibut's new Chief Sustainability Officer in March.
