Seafood Scotland appoints new boss
SEAFOOD Scotland, the national trade body, has appointed Donna Fordyce as its interim head, replacing Patrick Hughes, who was in the role since January 2017.
Fordyce has been Seafood Scotland’s industry engagement specialist for the past two years.
She is already engaged with the industry at leadership level, having previously spent time as an observer on the Seafood Scotland board, been a member of the working group for Scottish Seafood Partnership, is a Projects Approval Committee (PAC) member for the European Maritime & Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and, with Hughes, co-authored the recently launched Seafood Scotland strategy, Changing Tides.
John Anderson, chairman of Seafood Scotland, said:‘Donna has a passion for the seafood industry and has excellent knowledge of how it operates, across a wide range of sub-sectors and supply chains.’
Fordyce said:‘In an ever changing and uncertain landscape, it’s important now more than ever that Seafood Scotland is agile and ready to take on any opportunities or challenges the industry may face. It’s an exciting time to be at the head of the organisation.’
