Cooke Aquaculture Scotland has promoted Stewart Rendall to the newly created post of North Isles Manager. The move is in response to the “continued growth” of Cooke’s Orkney operations, the company said.
As from today (1 March) Orkney Area Manager Robert (Timbo) Peterson will retain overall responsibility for Orkney, while Stewart Rendall will take on the new role.
Stewart Rendall was previously manager of Cooke’s Westray sites, including the East Skelwick high energy site situated 2.5km from the nearest land. He will take on responsibility for the Rousay and Stronsay sites, which occupy more exposed locations around the Orkney coast with similar sea conditions to those in Westray.
Colin Blair, Managing Director of Cooke Aquaculture Scotland said: “We are excited about these changes and I am confident having Timbo and Stewart in place will enable us to maximise production within our crucial Orkney operations, particularly in our organic and Label Rouge lines”.
