Julie Coutts (pictured), who joined the seafood supply company in 2018, has been promoted to the managerial role, reporting to managing director Jimmy Buchan.

One of the founding team members of the seafood supplier, Julie will be responsible for supporting daily operations and the growing Amity team, as well as maintaining her current role as business development manager.

Since joining Amity Fish Company, Julie has played an important part in the evolution of the business and helped shape it into what is has become today.

Mr Buchan, said: “Julie has been instrumental in developing the business and its internal structure to date and now is the perfect time for her to take on this additional role to focus the business’ e- commerce growth, as well as make preparations for the reopening of the food service sector.

"It has been a difficult period for all in food service and we must be ready and focused to provide a limited supply prior to scaling up when it reopens.”

Julie said she was looking forward to her new role, and the challenges ahead in 2021.

She added: “Every day at Amity is different for me, and over the last year I’ve learned that the more adaptable to change and being open to every presented opportunity we are, the more successful we have been. Amity is growing at pace and it is exciting for me as this role has evolved to also be recruiting locally to add to our ‘crew’.”​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
