Before that he spent 11 years with Greencore, most recently as Category Operations Director, and formerly held several senior Operational roles at Hazlewood Foods and Entenmanns Baking Company.

Bill Showalter, Chief Executive of Young’s Seafood Ltd, said: “I’m pleased to announce that Mark Richmond will join our business as Group Operations Director, and member of the Young’s Seafood Ltd Board. Throughout his career, Mark has driven best in class quality, commercial and customer focussed organisations that are able to succeed in demanding industries.”

His appointment will take effect in mid May 2019.
