Lene Stokka, Catrine Smørås, and Ruben Helmersen Johansen joined Benchmark's commercial team for salmon. This change, which is a combination of promotions and position restructuring, aims to enhance the company's sales of products to the salmon industry.
The change is part of a planned strategic initiative to further strengthen the company's customer support, following Kate Furhovden Stenerud assuming the role of commercial director for salmon at Benchmark.
Kate will be joined by experienced colleagues in the reorganized team. Lene Stokka and Catrine Smørås have been working as fish health specialists in the technical department at Benchmark Animal Health since 2021. Close dialogue with customers in connection with sea lice treatments has been an important part of their work, and they will continue to fulfill this task in their new roles in the commercial team. The new organization will also ensure that Benchmark's customers will have their primary point of contact consolidated within one team.
“In addition to customer contact, Lene and Catrine will ensure that the team enhances their expertise by sharing their knowledge and experiences with their colleagues. This change will also contribute to closer follow-up with our customers to ensure best practices and optimal use of our medicines,” said Stenerud.
Ruben Helmersen Johansen has been employed as a trainee in the marketing team since August last year and has now been given a permanent position as a sales and technical associate. His primary task will be to work closely with the company's customers in Southern Norway to ensure their successful ova inlay practices.
