Grimsby-based frozen seafood giant Young's Seafood takes on former McCain Finance Director Saeeda Amin as CFO as of Sept. 2.

Amin spent the past four years heading the finance department for the multi-national Canadian frozen potato firm in the United Kingdom.

Prior to that, Amin also held top role finance positions in the privately-owned food manufacturing companies 2 Sisters Food Group and Bakkavor.

In June, Young's Seafood also announced former UK seafood processor Seachill's Simon Smith as the Group's CEO only after the company was sold to the UK pork firm Karro, fully owned by private equity group CapVest.

Amin will also be a member of Young's board replacing Tim Busby, who will leave the business in Sept.

Earlier this month, Young's reported strong results for the fiscal year 2018 with higher earnings and sales driven by several contract wins in the frozen seafood sector and new listings for chilled products.
