Benchmark names new global land-based commercial lead; expands UK team
Aquaculture biotech company Benchmark has appointed Harry Tziouvas as Commercial Lead for the UK and Global Land-Based operations.
Tziouvas, previously the Global Sales and Technical Manager for salmon at Benchmark, has a substantial track record in the industry, having served as Senior Biologist at the Scottish Salmon Company, now part of Bakkafrost Scotland.
With this promotion, Tziouvas is expected to leverage his experience in fish health management to drive Benchmark’s commercial strategies in the UK and global land-based aquaculture markets.
In addition, Alex Kulczyk has joined Benchmark’s commercial team as the Sales and Technical UK associate. Kulczyk’s previous role as Site Manager at AquaGen’s Holywood Breeding Centre, combined with his academic background in Aquaculture and Fisheries Management, positions him as a valuable asset to Benchmark’s operations.
Benchmark’s reinforcement of its commercial team signifies a strategic move to cement its foothold in the UK aquaculture industry, which is an integral part of the country’s agricultural sector.
“I am thrilled that Alex has embraced this exciting opportunity to contribute his expertise to Benchmark,” said Tziouvas. “His background and experience will undoubtedly strengthen our support for Scottish and Irish customers.”
Commenting on his new role, Kulczyk, who will be based at Benchmark’s offices in Edinburgh, Scotland, said, “I am very excited to join and contribute to the dynamic team at Benchmark. Aquaculture is a fast paced and innovative industry, and I believe that the specialized products and services that Benchmark provides will support a sustainable and resilient future. I look forward to working alongside and supporting our Scottish and Irish customers and being a part of this forward-thinking company.”
