Mark Holyoake was recently featured in an article by Tom Seaman that was published on the Undercurrent News website titled, “Holyoake, Sveinsson step down from ISI board, former Icelandic Group CEO Set to Join.” The article reveals how the British businessman recently stepped down from his position at Iceland Seafood International, otherwise known as ISI. He was formerly on the board of the company. The previous CEO of the competitor, Icelandic Group, will replace him.
Mark Holyoake has had a number of successes and losses in the seafood market ever since he joined it. He previously joined the seafood market with his British Seafood Group Company. The company collapsed in 2010. Previously, he had a 42% stake in ISI but he eventually reduced that to 25%. The integrated company has added three large fishing companies to the market, taking a large chunk of the seafood market. Holyoake holds his shares of the market through a company named International Seafood Holding. He was the largest shareholder for the market for a long time. He held 550.85 million shares of the total 1.29 billion shares of ISI. His current stake in the company is worth more than $40 million. The stake will begin to be diluted as they release new shares when they bought Icelandic Iberica. They bought the company from Solo Seafood to acquire more fishing and processing companies. ISI or Iceland Seafood Iceland became one of the world’s leading exporters of seafood from Iceland. They deliver to markets all over the world. They focus on using a variety of commercialization tactics from fresh fish to land frozen.
