Proposal for new chairman of the board of SalMar ASA. The Nomination Committee of SalMar ASA states that Atle Eide has announced that he will not apply for re-election as Chairman of the Board of the company.
In its search for new candidates, the Nomination Committee has emphasised the interests of the shareholder community and the company’s need for competence, experience and capacity. – After a thorough assessment, the committee has come to a recommendation where Leif Inge Nordhammer replaces Atle Eide as chairman of the board, says the chairman of the nomination committee Bjørn Wiggen.

Boneng & Sønn, Frøya Holding AS and Hydro Seafood AS. Nordhammer has been a board member of SalMar since June 2020.
Furthermore, Magnus Dybvad is nominated as a new board member as a representative of majority owner Kverva.
