AKVA group Scotland has appointed David Peach as its new commercial director, replacing Douglas Johnson, who is retiring after a lengthy career within the aquaculture sector.
Peach has more than 25 years’ experience in the marine industry and arrives at AKVA from a senior position as group sales director at 3Si, Safety and Survival Systems International.
“I’m delighted to be joining the AKVA team and building strong relationships with customers and developing a robust sales team, along with ensuring that excellence in customer service and the supply of innovative, and high-quality products, is maintained,” said Peach.
With AKVA in Scotland now employing more than 70 people, David’s role will be to lead the commercial organisation in delivering profitable sales while upholding customer service and support standards. In addition, he will actively explore new commercial opportunities for AKVA group Scotland and seek to monetise these over the coming period, the company said.
“David’s strong sales background will bring great value to AKVA group Scotland as it continues to develop and thrive within the U.K., industry, as well as allowing us to develop our international business,” said AKVA group Scotland general manager Jason Cleaversmith.
