Ocean Beauty, one of the nation’s largest and most recognized seafood companies had just built a brand new, state-of-the-art processing facility when they retained Cowen Partners’ services to find a world class General Manager.
Cowen Partners identified four highly-qualified candidates across the country, all of whom worked directly for the competition. Three were interviewed, two were considered, and three months later, the company had an accepted offer..
Ocean Beauty Seafoods began in 1910 as a small seafood shop known as the Washington Fish & Oyster Company. Over a century later, we have grown to become one of the largest and most successful seafood companies in North America, with seven distribution locations across the Western United States, and two smoking and processing plants in Washington state.
We are owned by the Bristol Bay Economic Development Corporation (BBEDC) and an accomplished group of seafood industry veterans. A non-profit corporation established in 1992, the BBEDC promotes fishery-related economic development opportunities for residents of select Alaskan communities through the sustainable management of Bering Sea resources.
