Pilar Cruz is one of very few women in the seafood industry sitting at the helm of a company the size of Cargill Aqua Nutrition.
But this has never got in her way.
She has travelled the globe, taking roles in Canada, the United Kingdom, Nicaragua and now the United States, working across Cargill's industry segments, from meat to animal feed to aquaculture.
She is driven and ambitious. But she is also a people person and a huge advocate for diversity across the teams she operates in.
Through the pandemic she has missed travel and people, but is also an ardent believer in the future of a sustainable aquaculture industry, which she is proud to be a part of.
To find out what makes her tick, how she views her leadership style, her words of advice for surviving a pandemic and her thoughts on the future of the global aquaculture industry watch IntraFish's exclusive video interview, below.
