New Regional Managers and Head of International Trade and Regions appointed by Seafish

Seafish welcomes a new member to its regional team and has announced new roles for two of its existing team members.

With nine years at Seafish already behind her, Dr Lynn Gilmore moves from the role of Regional Manager in Northern Ireland into the position of Head of International Trade and Regions.

Gavin Hatton joins the team as Regional Manager for the Humber and North East England. He takes over from Julie Snowden, who has moved into a new role as Regional Manager for London and the South East of England.

Julie has worked for Seafish for 12 years as an Account Manager in England, working with the top English levy payers and the seafood cluster in Yorkshire and Humber. In her new role she has moved to focus on stakeholder engagement work in the south east of England.

“These roles strengthen Seafish’s presence in England where Gavin and Julie will engage with a broad range of stakeholders and work on bespoke regional projects with the many seafood associations in their areas,” Lynn Gilmore said.

“The creation of an additional Regional Manager’s role in London and the South East of England indicates the importance Seafish places on delivering benefit to our stakeholders in the regions and we would encourage anyone with an interest in our work to get in touch.”

Gavin, who is from North East Lincolnshire, has worked within the seafood industry for 14 years since leaving university where he completed a degree in Marine Biology. Latterly he was New Business Commercial Manager at Seachill in Grimsby, and previously has worked for Young’s.

“I’m looking forward to building on Julie’s work in Yorkshire and North East England,” he said on taking up his new post.

“I’m also excited about meeting people across the wider industry, getting to know them and ensuring we deliver good value to our stakeholders.”
