Jan Roger Lerbukt, CEO Hermes AS:


Jan Roger Lerbukt has been the CEO of the trawler company Hermes AS since 2009. As leader, he has turned the family shipping company into a leading player when it comes to the use of modern fisheries technology, with a strong focus on openness and communication.



Two of Hermes AS’ main pillars are continuously developing modern methods for a traditional company, and actively telling the history about the boat and ocean fisheries. This is the starting point for the company’s project Welcome on Board, where people can meet the captain and the crew onboard, through live sound and video via satellite – between the vessel far out in the Barents Sea and different onshore localities.
