Who is Christian Hope?
I am 30 years (young) from an island called Bømlo, halfway between Bergen and Haugesund. I am married with three great kids.
What is your story?
My education is some what out of the ordinary for this industry, as an electrical engineer with a specialization in renewable energy. After working a few years in an oil related position, I started my career in Bremnes Seashore where I stayed for five years. My last position in Bremnes Seashore was Biological Controller.
Why the cluster?
I had never heard of the cluster before. My phone rang in early June, where I was asked to come in for an interview. I was intrigued and figured I needed to know more about this opportunity – and here I am today!
What are you looking forward to with your new position as Data Manager at AquaCloud?
I look forward to taking AquaCloud to the next level, creating great benefits to fish farmers, and added value to all the data we collect every single day. I also look forward to exciting projects that can bring everyone new knowledge and experience.
What will be your role in the NCE Seafood Innovation team?
I have only met the full team a few times so it’s hard to say, but I am aiming to bring a lot of great humor and good vibes to the team!
We are very excited to have you on the team Christian!
