Sealord appoints CEO

New Zealand-based Sealord Group has appointed Steve Yung as CEO.

Yung has 30 years of broad multi-channel experience in the food industry, including FMCG, food service, manufacturing and agriculture across Australian, New Zealand and Canadian markets. He will start his new role on 25 August.

Most recently, Yung served as managing director of McCain Foods in Australia/New Zealand where he was also a member of the global senior leadership team.

Sealord Group Chairman Matanuku Mahuika said Yung has a strong set of skills that will help the company’s growth and development, particularly in the Australian market.

“Steve’s extensive experience in multi-national food manufacturing environments will be extremely valuable as Sealord works to grow and develop our business.

“He joins the business towards the end of what we expect to be a solid financial year in which Sealord has returned to profit after the challenges of last year and is looking at opportunities to further improve its existing operations,” said Mahuika.

“Sealord has a proud legacy of delivering quality seafood to people around the world and I look forward to joining the Sealord team with its ever sharpening focus on customers, an innovative approach to sustainability leadership and a proven history of shareholder returns,” Yung said.
