American Seafoods Names New CEO

  (UNITED STATES, 1/16/2017)

American Seafoods Group has announced that its Board of Directors has selected Mikel Durham to serve as its Chief Executive Officer effective January 16, 2017. Current CEO and Chairman Bernt Bodal will continue as Chairman.

“I am delighted to welcome Mikel Durham to the American Seafoods family,” said Bodal. “Mikel is a talented food service and consumer products executive with a proven track record of strong performance. I look forward to working closely with her to build greater awareness and demand for the healthy and sustainably-harvested wild seafood products we produce.”

Mikel Durham.

Durham comes to American Seafoods with deep experience in the food service and consumer products industries and with substantial product innovation and channel development expertise. She is an independent Board member of Tyson Foods and has previously served as the Global Growth Officer of PepsiCo’s North America Foodservice business, President of Burger King North America, President of Global Supply Chain for Cadbury Schweppes, Managing Director of Guinness Venture Markets, Chief Commercial Officer of CSM Bakery Solutions, and General Manager of Yum! Southern Europe. Durham holds a B.A. in Economics from SmithCollege and an MBA from Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration.

“American Seafoods is a leader in supplying high-quality, sustainably-harvested, and healthy wild-caught seafood products throughout the world,” stated Durham. “I’m excited for the opportunity to work with this dynamic organization to further realize its growth objectives.”

“Mikel is an accomplished leader with a deep understanding of how to develop innovative products, build strong brands, and access growing markets,” said Scott Perekslis, a member of the Board and Managing Partner of Bregal Partners. “Her experience in domestic and international food markets is important to accomplish the company’s strategic objectives of growing demand for its core products and developing new applications for its sustainably-harvested species. I’m confident that she will bring to our team new views, a new momentum, and contribute to the sustainable growth of American Seafoods.”

As Chairman, Bodal will devote his time to supporting strategic initiatives and maintaining and cultivating key customer and banking relationships. Bodal has served in executive leadership positions at American Seafoods since 1991 and as its CEO since 2000, when he led the buyout of the company from its original Norwegian owners following the implementation of the American Fisheries Act. Under his leadership, the company maintained strong EBITDA margins and built successful long-term customer relationships while strengthening its position as the one of the largest whitefish producers in the world.

Bodal noted that Durham’s selection as CEO was a result of a rigorous selection process conducted by American Seafoods’ Board over several months. “Out of the many candidates we considered, Mikel distinguished herself as a consummate professional with a deep understanding of global food markets. She is a team builder who understands the importance of setting and achieving goals together.”
