Aker BioMarine has expanded its team in Australasia by hiring Alex Tomlinson as business development manager. He will help lead the region's new office in Melbourne, Australia, with a focus on nurturing existing business relationships and forging new ones.
Tomlinson spent many years with various contract manufacturers of complementary medicines in Australia, working in several areas of the supply chain, including management, production, quality assurance, operations and business development. He also possesses in-depth knowledge when it comes to working with krill oil formulations.
"We are excited to welcome Alex to Aker BioMarine," said Lalen Dogan, managing director, Aker BioMarine Antarctic Australasia Pty. "His business development experience combined with his deep understanding of the omega-3/krill industry makes him the perfect addition to our team in Australasia."
Aker BioMarine has seen triple-digit growth in Australia over the past couple years. Most recently, the company was granted Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, which guarantees the sustainability and 100 percent traceability of Superba(TM) Krill.
