After five years as Managing Director of Loch Duart, the North West Scotland based salmon farming business, Alban Denton has announced his retirement, which will be effective from the end of 2019.
The board was informed of this decision several months ago. During his tenure Alban has led the company through the recovery and strengthening of the business, which has delivered a sustained period of investment and growth.
Upon joining Loch Duart in 2015 Alban committed to the role for five years. As the business approaches its next cycle of investment and renewal, he has decided not to commit to the next stage.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and the success we have had over the past five years. As Managing Director of a tremendous company, brand and team it has been a privilege to be part of the story that is Loch Duart. I wish the Board, the Executive and all my colleague employees great success in the future,” Denton said.
Chairman Alistair Erskine, on behalf of the board said: “We would like to thank Alban for his energy, resilience, commitment and positive impact on the business and the wider industry throughout his service. There can be no doubting that the Loch Duart of today is a much stronger business than when Alban joined us.”
Finance Director, Simon Maguire will act as Interim Managing Director with immediate effect, while the board is recruiting a successor.
