The SeaShare board this week named Jim Harmon as executive director. SeaShare is a Bainbridge Island, Wash., nonprofit hunger-relief organization that links seafood companies to food banks nationwide.
With SeaShare for nearly a decade, Harmon replaces SeaShare founder Tuck Donnelly, who retired from the post in January.
As operations director, Harmon handled all product procurement and distribution efforts. Previously, he held operations positions with American Seafoods and Nestle Foods.
“I look forward to continuing SeaShare’s work on behalf of the seafood industry,” said Harmon. “We have great partners who are making a real difference. With the increased need generated by the poor economy, the work we do has never been more important than it is right now.”
“Jim has been at the forefront of SeaShare’s program development for nine years,” added Donnelly, who will serve on the SeaShare board. “He has a clear vision of the challenges and the opportunities ahead, along with the leadership and management skills to greatly enhance SeaShare’s nationwide hunger-relief efforts.”
