Silver Bay Seafoods names new CEO
Salmon processor Silver Bay Seafoods announced that it has named Cora Campbell, its chief external affairs officer, as its new president and CEO.
Campbell’s appointment to the position replaces CEO Richard Riggs and company co-founder and president Troy Denkinger. Prior to her appointment Campbell served as president and CEO of Siu Alaska Corporation, and previously she served as the commissioner of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
According to a press release, Riggs – who had been with the company since its founding in 2007 – will remain a managing partner, overseeing all sales and related activities.
