Young’s Seafood has promoted Steve Baker to the post of sales director, overseeing the company’s commercial team.

Baker joined Young’s in 2007 as an account director. He has worked in the food industry for over 25 years, including as a former managing director of RVP Foods.

Commenting on the challenges ahead in his new role, Baker said: “The current economic climate has upped the pace of change in retail and some challenging demands are being placed at the doors of suppliers. However that same climate is also a great opportunity for the frozen sector.”
