Managing director of leading salmon business to step down



The managing director of salmon farming business Loch Duart is to retire at the end of the year.

Alban Denton, who has been managing director for five years, informed the board of his decision several months ago.

In stepping down he is fulfilling what he said when he joined in 2015 that he would commit to the role for five years.

He said that as the business approaches its next cycle of investment and renewal, he had decided not to commit to the next stage.

Denton said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and the success we have had over the past five years.

“As managing director of a tremendous company, brand and team it has been a privilege to be part of the story that is Loch Duart.

“I wish the board, the Executive and all my colleague employees great success in the future.”

Chairman Alistair Erskine said: “We would like to thank Alban for his energy, resilience, commitment and positive impact on the business and the wider industry throughout his service. “There can be no doubting that the Loch Duart of today is a much stronger business than when Alban joined us.”

In his time in charge Loch Duart won a number of awards including the Exporter of the Year category at the Insider Made in Scotland Awards 2019 and the Food and Drink category in the awards in 2017.

Finance director, Simon Maguire will act as interim managing director with immediate effect, while the board is recruiting a successor.
