Thai Union Restructures European Management Team
Seafood company Thai Union has announced that it is restructuring its European management team, following the resignation of Elisabeth Fleuriot as CEO of Thai Union Europe.
“Elisabeth has been a strong and highly valued leader of our business in Europe," said Thiraphong Chansiri, CEO of Thai Union.
"Her decision to leave after a career spanning four years has forced us to reflect on our organisational structure and examine how to further embed the ‘one Thai Union’ philosophy.”
The company, which produces brands such as Chicken of the Sea and John West, is introducing a new management structure for its European business, as part of its plans to streamline operations globally.
Paul Reenan will now become regional president for Europe, responsible for commercial marketing, sales, and service. He is currently head of Northern Europe Ambient, managing John West, King Oscar, and Rugen Fisch.
“As we continue to integrate recent European acquisitions into the business and further embed the ‘one Thai Union’ philosophy, we are confident that we have in place the right organisation structure, coupled with a proven and highly effective management team," added Chansiri.
"This will put our customers at the heart of our business and ensure we are in good shape to withstand current and future pressures in the global seafood industry.”
