JACK Coulbeck has joined his parents at Grimsby based JCS Fish as commercial manager, with the business anticipating continued growth and the launch of new products in its Big Fish Brand salmon range.
The son of founders Andrew and Louise Coulbeck, Jack is a first class honours graduate in accounting and finance and a part qualified CIMA accountant.
For the past three years he has been gaining experience of the seafood industry and commercial finance in a graduate role at Young’s Seafood.
Andrew Coulbeck said: ‘We were delighted when Jack chose to develop his career in the seafood industry and even more delighted when the opportunity arose this spring for him to join us.
‘We are proud of what we have achieved so far for JCS Fish as an independent family firm and Jack brings some very useful skills to the company.’
Jack said: ‘Since graduating I have concentrated on broadening my business experience and working towards my chartered accountancy status.
‘It seemed like a natural next step to come into the family business, although in some ways working for the family will probably prove harder than working anywhere else!’
Andrew added: ‘As an undergraduate Jack earned his stripes in various production roles at JCS during the summer holidays so he is already familiar with how the business works and well known to the rest of the team.
‘He can look forward to excellent support and mentoring not just from myself and Louise but from everyone else in the business.’
