Robinson, Campbell named to SeaShare board
Fiona Robinson, assoc. publisher and editor of SeaFood Business, and Casey Campbell, senior business relationships manager for Wells Fargo Alaska, recently were named to the SeaShare board of directors. The Seattle-based nonprofit is the only nonprofit organization that focuses on seafood as a source of nutrition for hunger-relief. SeaShare works with fishermen, processors, distributors and importers across the country to generate truckloads of seafood that would otherwise not be available for food banks and feeding centers.
Robinson has worked at SeaFood Business, produced by Diversified Business Communications of Portland, Maine, the parent company of SeafoodSource, for 16 years. "I am looking forward to working with SeaShare to get more seafood into the hands of struggling families who are increasingly relying on the country's food banks as a food source. Children make up 40 percent of food bank recipients. Seafood plays an important role in a balanced diet, yet most consumers, especially those in financial distress, don't eat enough seafood to maintain a healthy lifestyle," said Robinson.
Campbell was born and raised in Alaska, and has been involved in the seafood industry for 16 years. He started working as a deck hand, was a research analyst for a consulting firm and an economist for the state of Alaska. Campbell now works in banking and is primarily focused on working with seafood-related customers and is based in Anchorage, Alaska. He helped develop the Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit put on by Alaska Sea Grant.
"I look forward to working with SeaShare, its board members and partners to continue to provide seafood to the nation's food bank system and other organizations. It is a very important mission to ensure healthy food is available to those in need."
The appointments were announced as SeaShare gears up for its annual fundraising, 50 percent of which is donated in the fourth quarter. Individuals and companies are encouraged to join SeaShare's efforts to put more seafood on more tables across America. You can find out more information at www.seashare.org.
