Young's Seafood CEO resigns

British retail seafood company Young's Seafood CEO Leendert den Hollander has resigned his position, according to a statement from Young's.

Hollander has worked for Young's since 2010, becoming CEO in February 2011. The company did not indicate why Leendert was leaving other than to say he "has accepted a senior leadership role with another firm outside the seafood industry."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Young's and I know that the company will continue to build on its strong foundations to deliver future growth in close partnership with its customers," Hollander said in a statement.

James Hill, CEO of the parent company Findus Group, will take on the CEO role at Young's, according to the statement. There will be no other changes at the executive level of the company, Young's said. In a statement, Hill called Hollander "instrumental" in the company's development.

"I would like to thank Leendert for all of his contributions to the broader Findus Group and acknowledge that he is leaving the UK business with a legacy of stability and strong and positive results," Hill said. "I wish him well in his future career."
