Seaweed derived feed additive producer appoints non-executive director to board
UK based Ocean Harvest Technology Group (OHT) plc, a producer of animal feed additives from multispecies seaweed blends, reports that Stephen Walker has joined its board as a non-executive director.
Walker is a representative of Terance Butler Holdings Limited, a shareholder in OHT since 2015.
Mark Williams, CEO of OHT, said the new appointee brings a wealth of experience that will bring new perspectives and capabilities to the board, as OHT looks to deliver on its growth strategy.
Walker has significant experience within the investment management and private client facing environment, according to the feed additive company. He was head of equities research and market strategy at Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management, a private client investment management firm, until 2015. He subsequently joined Terance Butler Holdings Limited, a privately owned property development and investment company, as director of investment and economic strategy. He completed a bachelor’s degree in economics, and an MA in finance and investment. He is also a CFA and CAIA charterholder.
OHT raised £6m (US$7.4m) after listing on a sub-market of the London Stock Exchange, the AIM, in April this year.
