Clearwater announced Friday it will restructure the company for accelerated growth and profitability both organically and through future acquisitions.

The Canadian company said it sees significant growth opportunities within a rapidly evolving global seafood industry and it is re-organizing its leadership team into two areas of focus, global supply chain and global markets.

Eric Roe, COO will leave by 30 April and Greg Morency, executive VP and chief commercial office, will assume the newly created role of president and chief commercial officer.

The company will recruit a global supply chain leader with deep international experience “and with knowledge and skills to develop a world class global supply chain operation.”

“These changes to the organization of our leadership team are consistent with industry best practice and will increase our capacity and competency to grow in new and existing ways, manage complexity as well as ensure we are effective and competitive in everything we do on land and at sea,” said Ian Smith, Clearwater CEO.
