Nofima has appointed Linn Anne Bjelland Brunborg as its new director of the aquaculture division.

She’s leaving her position as general manager of Orkla Ocean and will start as division director on Jan. 1

Bente Torstensen, CEO of Nofima said the company is happy to welcome Brunborg. “As an institute for applied research, close contact with industry is important. Before gaining solid experience as a leader in the private sector over the past 10-12 years, Linn Anne worked as a researcher,” said Torstensen.

Brunborg studied human nutrition at the University of Bergen and started her professional career as a researcher at Nifes in Bergen. She worked for Norgesmøllene before joining Orkla in 2012 where she held some senior positions and worked as general manager.

Brunborg says she’s passionate about the ocean and believes Norway should lead the way in the restructuring process.

“Both from my time as a researcher and from my time in the business sector, I know that there are many research results that can contribute to restructuring. Nofima has a vision of sustainable food for everyone, and here lies the core of what I want to achieve in my new job: We will contribute to and influence the restructuring that is needed in the food industry. We will contribute to innovations that make it possible,” says Brunborg.
