Since coming on board with Sea Pact in 2016, our ten member companies have come to know and value Rob for his knowledge and experience in the NGO community, as well as his commitment to driving continuous improvement of our fisheries. As Managing Director, Rob showed dedication, hard work, and professionalism as a representative of Sea Pact. He was our biggest cheerleader in encouraging precompetitive collaboration in the seafood industry.
Rob played an integral role in the development and growth of Sea Pact, especially in building relationships and securing outside funding. With Rob’s direction, we have been able to distribute the funding to support projects aligned with our mission. He made us proud when Sea Pact became part of the Conservation Alliance and Rob was an incredible representative on countless conference panels around the world. In the midst of the seafood industry’s COVID-19 struggles, Rob was at the helm of Sea Pact, organizing weekly virtual check-in meetings where each member shared their experiences and best practices to challenges our companies were facing.
We are very appreciative of Rob’s hard work leading Sea Pact over the past five years and he will be missed. We wish him the greatest happiness and success in his future.
