The United Kingdom's seafood trade body, Seafish, has appointed a new regional manager and changed the roles of two of its existing team members.

Lynn Gilmore moves from the role of regional manager in Northern Ireland into the position of head of international trade and regions. Gilmore has worked at Seafish for nine years.

Gavin Hatton joins the team as regional manager for the Humber and northeast England. He takes over from Julie Snowden, who has moved into a new role as regional manager for London and southeast England.

Snowden has worked for Seafish for 12 years as an account manager in England, working with the top English levy payers and the seafood cluster in Yorkshire and Humber. In her new role, she will focus on stakeholder engagement work.

“These roles strengthen Seafish’s presence in England where Gavin and Julie will engage with a broad range of stakeholders and work on bespoke regional projects with the many seafood associations in their areas,” Gilmore said. “The creation of an additional regional manager’s role in London and the southeast of England indicates the importance Seafish places on delivering benefit to our stakeholders in the regions and we would encourage anyone with an interest in our work to get in touch.”

Hatton has worked within the seafood industry for 14 years since leaving university where he did a degree in Marine Biology. Recently, he was new business commercial manager at Seachill in Grimsby, and previously worked for Young’s.
