JCS Fish adds another generation to the family business

Published on

Grimsby, United Kingdom-based JCS Fish has hired Jack Coulbeck as its new commercial manager to help contribute to the business’s continued growth as well as facilitate new product launches under its Big Fish Brand salmon range. 

The son of JCS Fish founders Andrew and Louise Coulbeck, Jack Coulbeck holds a degree in accounting and finance, and recently served in a graduate role at Young’s Seafood for three years to gain insight into the seafood industry and commercial finance. 

"We were delighted when Jack chose to develop his career in the seafood industry and even more delighted when the opportunity arose this spring for him to join us,” JCS Managing Director Andrew Coulbeck said. “We are proud of what we have achieved so far for JCS Fish as an independent family firm and Jack brings some very useful skills to the company."

"As an undergraduate, Jack earned his stripes in various production roles at JCS during the summer holidays, so he is already familiar with how the business works and well known to the rest of the team,” Andrew Coulbeck added. “He can look forward to excellent support and mentoring not just from myself and Louise but from everyone else in the business."

"Since graduating I have concentrated on broadening my business experience and working towards my Chartered accountancy status,” said Jack Coulbeck, who is a part-qualified CIMA accountant.  “It seemed like a natural next step to come into the family business, although in some ways working for the family will probably prove harder than working anywhere else.”
