One of the managing directors for Young’s seafood has resigned due to changes to the management structure at the U.K.-based processor, the company announced today.

Wayne Hudson (pictured), managing director of the frozen business unit at Young’s, will leave the company as of 31 July.

“I would like to thank Wayne Hudson for his contribution to the development of our frozen brand over the past two years,” said Pete Ward, Young’s CEO. “Wayne will leave a frozen business that has succeeded in accelerating its innovation pipeline, improving the consistency of our Brand and driving our market share in an increasingly competitive environment.”

The departure follows a series of restructuring moves at Young’s. The company has recently adopted what it calls the “One Young’s” concept to its structure, which included folding the frozen business unit into the larger company.

“Wayne considered other roles within Young’s and the wider Findus Group but made the decision to leave the company and pursue his career elsewhere,” the company said in a statement.
