Chicken of the Sea announced two new March hires that will fill a pair of vice president positions in the company.

The company announced the hire of Dan Goldstone on 14 March to the position of senior vice president of human resources. He’ll be responsible for leading all key human resources functions for Chicken of the Sea International, reporting directly to Chicken of the Sea International CEO Valentin Ramirez,  Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods CEO Bryan Rosenberg, and Khun Chang, Thai Union’s head of group human resources.

Goldstone has held human resources director positions previously at Treasury Wine Estates, one of the world’s largest wine companies; Bright View Corporation, a commercial landscaping company; and the Brown-Forman Corporation, parent company to Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey.

“Dan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience leading global human resources teams to the growing Chicken of the Sea organization,” Ramirez said. “His domestic and international experience will be instrumental to the future of the brand as we look to expand our foothold and commitment to hiring and retaining the world’s brightest talent.”

The company also announced the hire of Graham Orriss, a 20-year veteran in supply chain management, on 26 March. He has been named the vice president of supply chain for Chicken of the Sea, and will also report to Ramirez.

Orriss was in a similar supply-chain position for Coty, Inc., a global beauty products company controlling brands like CoverGirl, Adidas, and Calvin Klein. Prior to that, he held several management positions at Proctor and Gamble.

“Graham has an outstanding track record of success at two of the world’s largest product manufacturers so we’re anxious for him to apply the same global thinking to the Chicken of the Sea supply chain,” Ramirez said. “Due to a number of new product launches and extensions in our pipeline, this is the ideal time for him to join the Chicken of the Sea executive team.”
