NOAA, Trident executives join SNP board of directors
The Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) appointed NOAA Deputy Assistant Administrator for Operations Paul Doremus and Trident Seafood Vice President of National Accounts Christine Garvey as new members of its board of directors.
The U.S. seafood promotion group also appointed Rich Products Senior Vice President of Consumer Brands Jim Motos as the board’s new vice chair.
“We are thrilled to have two exceptional leaders join the SNP board,” Steve Hart, the chair of SNP’s board, said in a press release. “Paul and Christine offer decades of sustainable seafood and consumer education knowledge that will provide great insights for the mission of SNP.”
“I have been a long-time supporter of SNP and believe strongly in the mission to educate Americans about the importance of sustainable seafood for human health as well as environmental health,” Doremus said. “I look forward to strengthening SNP’s work on seafood for human health through increased collaboration with NOAA Fisheries.”
Doremus, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the agency, also leads NOAA’s strategic initiative to expand U.S. seafood production – primarily through aquaculture.
Meanwhile, Garvey has pioneered the Women of Seafood program, which provides in-depth education through hands-on, experiential learning of the seafood industry. She also has more than 30 years of experience in the food industry.
“I am proud that Trident has supported SNP from its inception, and strongly believe in the SNP mission. I have worked closely with SNP President Linda Cornish for years on Women of Seafood,” Garvey said. “I believe there is great opportunity to further educate retailers and foodservice, health professionals, and especially consumers about the importance of seafood for better health.”
After joining the SNP board last year, Motos has played key roles in advancing the organization’s Little Seafoodies consumer education campaign, SNP said.
