Loch Duart MD steps down
Nick Joy, managing director of Scottish salmon farm Loch Duart, has decided to step down after 15 years in the position.
Joy cited multiple reasons, “from health, to family life and the wish to pursue other opportunities,” according to a statement from the company.
“Nick’s enthusiasm and creativity has made the company grow, win many awards and gain much recognition. His vision and determination have shaped the success of the company as it is today,” said Loch Duart Chairman Andrew Barbour. “Nick will leave a lasting legacy and we are taking our time to find just the right the person to take over the reins, someone who appreciates our unique style and has the energy and drive to continue to lead the business with our established and experienced team."
Joy will remain as managing director until March 2015, then assume the role of technical director at the company.
“It has been an amazing 15 years and I don’t regret a day of it,” Joy said. “It has been and remains a constant source of pride that we have achieved what we have. I have been very lucky to work with people of such integrity and commitment. I am also delighted to add that you haven’t seen the last of me!”
