Dave Hambleton replaces John Garner as North Pacific Seafoods president
A new leader has taken over at North Pacific Seafoods, Inc.
In an announcement made last week, Dave Hambleton joined the Seattle, Washington-based processor on Monday 27 November. Hambleton, who will serve as North Pacific’s president and chief operating officer, is a veteran seafood executive, having managed millions of pounds of production of pollock, salmon, crab, and other products for over a 25-year span as an executive at Trident Seafoods and Silver Bay Seafoods.
Most recently, Hambleton served as the COO for Silver Bay.
Hambleton’s experience in Alaskan products will be key for North Pacific, which markets a wide variety of wild seafood products from Alaska. The company owns seven processing plants located near major harvesting points in the state. Among its products includes salmon, halibut, and Pacific cod.
Hambleton replaces John Garner, whose retirement was announced in the same news release.
As president and CEO, Hambleton will oversee operations, sales, environmental compliance, personnel and safety divisions.
“Dave’s experience and industry knowledge will be great assets to the ongoing success of North Pacific Seafoods,” Garner said. “We look forward to strengthening and expanding our seafood operations in Alaska with his involvement and leadership.”
