Two new seafood industry appointees will join the board of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute in Juneau on March 31, as the state’s top promoter of wild Alaska seafood hears reports on ASMI programs, communications and state budget issues.
Gov. Bill Walker earlier this week announced the appointments of Richard Riggs, chief executive officer of Silver Bay Seafoods, and Tom Enlow, president and chief executive officer of Unisea, to large processor seats on the board.
Enlow takes the seat vacated by Barry Collier, president of Peter Pan Seafoods, whose term has expired.
Riggs will serve through the end of June in the large processor seat vacated by Amy Humphries, former president and chief executive officer of Icicle Seafoods, who resigned. Humphries left Icicle to become chief financial officer for the Seattle-based dairy company Darigold.
Come June 30, Riggs’ seat, the harvester seat currently help by veteran Kevin Adams, the small processor seat currently filled by Jack Schultheis, general manager of Kwik’Pak Fisheries, will be up for appointments by Walker.
The March ASMI board agenda includes a state of the state budget review from the McDowell Group. The board will also get updates on its food service, retail, communications, international program, sustainability program, seafood technical program and global food air program.
The meeting is open to the public and will be teleconferenced.
The call in number of 800-315-6338. The alternate call in number is 1-913-90409376 and the access code is 05684.
