Martine Werring-Westly (36) will start in Seafood Norway on February 1 next year, writes Seafood Norway in a press release. Sørlendingen will be part of the industrial department that works for the fishing industry and wild fish.
– The reason why I change jobs is simply that this was an exciting opportunity that it was not possible to say no to. I have worked in the seafood industry since 2013, and am very involved in the industry. This is an opportunity to work with the same issues, but from a different angle than I do today, Werring-Westly says to Fiskeribladet.
Werring-Westly comes from the position as senior adviser in the Ministry of Trade and Industry. She started in the then Fisheries and Coastal Department in 2013 and has worked with the seafood section in the business policy department before the last three years has been associated with the trade policy department, the section for seafood trade and the WTO. Werring-Westly has a law degree from the University of Oslo and has also worked in the Immigration Appeals Board.
– Motivates personally
– The seafood industry is a fantastically exciting and not least important industry. Although it may sound like a phrase, it is true and is something that motivates personally. I feel very privileged to take with me my commitment to the seafood industry and become part of the team for Seafood Norway, says Werring-Westly in the press release.
She is originally from Kristiansand, gifted and has children.
– Martine will strengthen the team in Seafood Norway. We are very lucky to have received approval from a skilled lawyer who has first-hand knowledge of the seafood industry. She has the skills we need and will need in the time ahead, as the seafood industry is only becoming more and more important. We are very happy that Martine has agreed to start in Seafood Norway, says CEO Geir Ove Ystmark in the press release.
