Trade organisation seeks new Chair as Bradley leaves after two and a half years at the helm.
The SSPO – which represents all Scotland’s seven salmon farming companies (Cooke Aquaculture Scotland, Grieg Seafood Shetland, Loch Duart, Mowi Scotland, The Scottish Salmon Company, Scottish Sea Farms and Wester Ross Salmon) – wrote in a recruitment brochure that it is in the process of “significant change”.
Chief Executive Julie Hesketh-Laird wrote this meant an organisational restructure to support an emerging 3-year SSPO Strategy and Operational Plan and an office move from Perth to Edinburgh.
The change includes seeking a new person to be appointed the SSPO Chair “to help drive the SSPO agenda forward, and to bring rigour and focus to the Board”.
The successful candidate will replace managing director of Wester Ross Fisheries Gilpin Bradley who stepped into the role two and a half years ago. Previous chairs include the former head of Scottish Development International (SDI) Anne MacColl and Professor Phil Thomas.
