Bristol Bay Native Corporation hires Amy Humphreys, Everette Anderson
Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC) has hired Amy Humphreys as Bristol Bay Seafood Investments president and CEO and Everette Anderson as Bristol Bay Seafood Investments senior vice president.
Humphreys, the former president and CEO of Icicle Seafoods, and Anderson, who is a BBNC board member, have been brought on to “provide strategic leadership and operational oversight to Bristol Bay Seafood Investments and its subsidiary Bristol Bay Alaska Seafoods,” according to a BBNC press release. The pair will work to expand BBNC’s venture into the Alaskan seafood market as well as in the global arena. Humphreys has also served as an executive and board member at American Seafoods, while Anderson previously worked as the Marine Stewardship Council’s senior commercial manager for the Western United States, and before that, in roles with NSF International, the Swinomish Fish Company, and APICDA.
“I am thrilled with this opportunity to serve BBNC’s shareholders,” Humphreys said. “The seafood industry is incredibly dynamic and offers boundless opportunities to deliver premium products to the world market. I’m pleased to join the solid team in place at BBNC and work together to expand further in the global seafood sector.”
Last autumn, BBNC purchased Blue North Fisheries and Clipper Seafoods, and brought the two companies under the umbrella title Bristol Bay Alaska Seafoods, LLC. At the same time, Bristol Bay Seafood Investments was created to function as the holding company for Bristol Bay Alaska Seafoods and as the company’s investment arm.
“This investment is about expansion and economic opportunity for BBNC and all of Alaska as this opportunity will help us expand internationally,” BBNC President and CEO Jason Metrokin said. “We have two amazing people ready to strengthen the leadership of this burgeoning sector, including one of our shareholders. While we will miss Everette on our board, his leadership in this new role drives us further down the road of success.”
