Aker BioMarine, a leading supplier of krill-derived products to the consumer health and wellness and animal nutrition markets, has hired two new employees at its company headquarters in Norway.

Cilia Holmes Indahl, the company’s new Director of Sustainability, will further develop and implement the company’s sustainability strategy while working with key stakeholders and non-government organizations (NGOs) interested in krill and Antarctica. During the past few years, Cilia has held several positions dedicated to sustainable development and climate change in Norway and abroad. She holds Masters Degrees in sustainable development and international business.

Katrin Berntsen, Aker BioMarine’s new Director of Communications, will be responsible for managing and directing the company’s internal and external communications. Passionate, creative and organised, Katrin brings more than 15 years of experience specialising in messaging strategy, product launches, crisis communications and more. Prior to joining Aker BioMarine, she managed communications for Wilhelmsen Ships Service and Opera Software. She holds a Masters Degree in European politics and a BA in media.

'We are happy to welcome Cilia and Katrin to the Aker BioMarine team,' said Matts Johansen, CEO, Aker BioMarine. 'At a time when sustainability should be considered a major component of a company’s DNA, it is essential to have a director, like Cilia, who can successfully implement the best strategy possible for our business. Equally important is a communications director, like Katrin, who has the ability to properly communicate key messages about our company inside and outside of our business. We look forward to having them both continue to push Aker BioMarine in a positive direction.'
