Message from Árni Oddur Thórdarson, the new CEO of Marel

I have enjoyed the past 8 years as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Marel and it is with passion that I now assume the role of CEO in our truly innovative company.

Our commitment to providing sustainable value has led to continuous advancement in food processing, benefitting consumers globally. Marel is the partner of choice in the production of high-quality food that is convenient, nutritious and environmentally friendly.

Marel will continue to focus on the industry segments of poultry, fish, meat and further processing. In addition, our global sales & service network remains a clear competitive advantage. However, recent operational results have not reflected our full potential. We have to strive for operational excellence throughout the organization with greater focus on aligning execution with strategy.

We have exceptional people and we operate in a market with huge potential. Together we will accomplish great things.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Theo Hoen for his valuable contribution to the company.

Best regards,
Árni Oddur
