Poseidon Seafood yesterday named C.P. Davis as president and CEO. Davis had been serving as president and COO since last July.
Charlotte, N.C.-based Poseidon is one of the country's largest privately held seafood distributors, marketing a complete line of fresh, frozen and value-added seafood products throughout the Southeast.
"Over the past year, C.P. has led many customer-development and supply-chain initiatives which have significantly improved overall results. C.P. has the right skills at the right time to lead Poseidon in the future as we continue to build our strong leadership position in the industry," says Matt Malone, chairman and VP of Hunt Private Equity Group of Dallas, which acquired Poseidon last year.
"C.P. has demonstrated strong operational expertise and disciplined leadership as president. He will continue to apply his considerable business building talents and drive continued success at Poseidon," adds Malone.
Poseidon founder Rich LaVecchia will become vice chairman and will work with the board and senior executive team to identify and capture strategic growth opportunities.
