Skaginn 3X appoints new sales manager for Russia and Asia. Viktoría Alfreðsdóttir has joined Skaginn 3X sales team as Regional Sales Manager for Russia and Asia, further expanding the company’s sales network.

Skaginn 3X recently appointed Viktoría Alfreðsdóttir as Regional Sales Manager for Russia and Asia. Viktoria – a Ukrainian native, fluent in Russian, English, Icelandic and Ukrainian — joins the team as part of an effort to expand the company’s sales network further into Russia and Asia.  She will be based at the company’s office in Reykjavík and will work closely alongside the Director of Sales Operations for the area, Pétur Jakob Pétursson.

The new addition to the team comes as a result of increased business opportunities in both Russia and Asia.  Skaginn 3X recently completed JSC Gidrostroy’s state-of-the-art pelagic processing plant located in the Kuril Islands in Russia’s Far East. The company is also working with Collective Farm Fishery by V.I. Lenin in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the Kamchatka Peninsula to complete a fish processing plant and outfit a super trawler.

Viktoria has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Reykjavík University as well as a master’s degree in brand management from Polimoda in Florence, Italy.

“Viktoria will make an excellent addition to the team here at Skaginn 3X. It is great to have someone join the team with a completely new perspective and fresh ideas,” says Pétur Jakob Pétursson, Director of Sales Operations for Russia and Asia. “Due to our successful projects in the Russian Far East, we have seen a tremendous increase in demand for our products and solutions from both the Russian and Asian markets.  Viktoria’s cultural knowledge and language abilities as well as her strong background in in-depth analysis into market needs, will open up plenty of doors for us in these markets.”
