Cooke-owned Slade Gorton has appointed Annie Tselikis as its new Director of Marketing and Business Development.

Tselikis has held positions throughout the seafood supply chain for over fifteen years, most recently serving as the Director of Marketing and Franchise Sales at Cousins Maine Lobster, a quick-service lobster roll concept with over 60 units nationwide.

“Annie is uniquely positioned to help us expand our engagement with chain operators, particularly within the commercial and non-commercial foodservice sector. She is passionate about the seafood industry and has a deep understanding of and appreciation for each step in the value chain – from the point of harvest to the end user,” said Kim Gorton, CEO, Slade Gorton and the fifth generation of her family to lead the company.

“My goal at Slade Gorton is to translate that diversity and mystique into accessibility and confidence for everyone who encounters our products,” said Tselikis.

Canada-based seafood group Cooke acquired Slade Gorton in March.

Founded in 1928, Slade Gorton is an importer and distributor of over 800 premium fresh and frozen seafood products sourced from over 25 countries and sold broadly across retail and foodservice channels throughout North America.

Slade Gorton carries one of the largest portfolios of fresh and frozen farmed raised Atlantic salmon in the United States. The company imports, packs and distributes frozen Atlantic salmon under the ICYBAY brand to foodservice and retail customers throughout the country.
