I am a third generation company leader of Pacific Seafood and serve as president and CEO. My grandfather started the company in 1941 as a small, fresh seafood retail counter operation in Portland, Oregon. I have spent the last 25 years following in my grandfather’s footsteps, and, thanks to a strong management staff committed to the company mission of operational excellence, Pacific Seafood has grown to include processing West Coast product from Alaska to Mexico with key distribution centers in Washington, Oregon, California, Texas, Nevada and Utah.
One of my personal drives – and a core mission of Pacific Seafood’s- is sustainability, and we have been rolling out a number of initiatives to improve our carbon footprint – from major recycle programs to processing our waste into organic fertilizer to reducing trucks on the road. We are very committed to the responsible use of environmental resources to ensure a sustainable seafood supply for generations to enjoy.
I attended Central Catholic High School in Portland and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Portland where I’m currently a member of the Board of Regents. I’m an avid outdoorsman and enjoy both water and snow skiing.
