Jørgen Ness (44), born in Sandefjord, is an Accounting Manager at Pure Salmon Kaldnes.
What is your education?
In 2000, I completed my Master of Business and Economics from BI. And in 2006, I became an authorized accountant.

Before I started working at Pure Salmon Kaldnes, I worked as a Finance Manager at the Quality Hotel Grand Farris in Larvik for five years. Prior to that, I worked as a Controller and Finance Manager within the cooling industry. I also have experience from an accountant office.
Why did you choose to start here?
Working for an international organization where reporting and communication occur on a global scale, sounded exciting. This is a large company within an exciting industry, and I strongly believe in aquaculture and land-based fish farming. I think this is a very forward-looking industry with great growth potential.
Becoming a part of a new environment where I can collaborate with others within the financial area, was also important to me. At Pure Salmon Kaldnes there are a lot of exciting processes going on, and no days are the same.
What is the best part of working here?
The best part about working here is coming in contact with many people with various competence and backgrounds. Moreover, I get the opportunity to learn, manage responsibility and I am given the necessary trust to do my job.
What do you think about the fact that the aquaculture department in is now part of the Pure Salmon group?
I think it´s an exciting strategic move, and it´s great to be a part of the new company owned by Pure Salmon. I hope that the new ownership can give us increased growth-opportunities, profitability and market shares for the future.
