Management change at BioMar


Torben Svejgård, who has served as CEO of BioMar since 2008, has announced his decision to resign to pursue a full-time career as a board member.

He will be replaced by Carlos Diaz, who is currently vice president of BioMar's Americas and Continental Europe regions. Mr Diaz will gradually take over Mr Svejgård's responsibilities over the course of the fourth quarter. 

Carlos Diaz, 45, is originally from Chile and has both a veterinary and a management background. Employed with BioMar since 2000, he built a strong career with the Chilean organisation before taking over responsibility for the Americas, Continental Europe and BioMar's business development.

In other words, assuming the position as CEO of BioMar is a natural next step in Mr Diaz's career, and it also marks a well planned generational change in which proven experience from within the organisation is the best means of ensuring a continuation of recent years' successes at BioMar.
