The Chilean Salmon Council will have a new executive director by the end of November as Joanna Davidovich relinquishes the role to join the council’s board as independent director.
The Salmon Council is made up of AquaChile, Australis, Cermaq, Mowi and Salmones Aysén, which together account for more than 50 percent of Chilean salmon production.
Davidovich spearheaded the creation of the guild in mid-2020.
The board thanked Davidovich, adding that under her leadership the council “prioritized publicizing the reality of salmon farming, and its contribution to regional and country development, as well as addressing its challenges and contributing to the best public policies to promote the sustainable development of the entire the value chain of the productive activity.”
The council announced other changes to its management.
It named Juan Luis Amenábar to represent the council in the Aysén region to strengthen the presence of the guild there. Amenábar was at some point the Ministerial Regional Secretary of Energy in the Aysén region.
