It’s a family affair

This month the BigFish team were delighted to welcome another member of the Coulbeck family to the company team.

Jack Coulbeck has joined JCS Fish as commercial manager, strengthening the company’s commercial function in a year when the business is anticipating continued growth and the launch of a number of new products in its Big Fish Brand salmon range.

As the son of JCS Fish founders, Andrew and Louise Coulbeck, Jack also adds another generation to the family business.  A first class honours graduate in accounting and finance, he is a part qualified CIMA accountant and for the past three years has been gaining experience of the seafood industry and commercial finance in a graduate role at Young’s Seafood.

Managing director, Andrew Coulbeck, says, “We were delighted when Jack chose to develop his career in the seafood industry and even more delighted when the opportunity arose this spring for him to join us.  We are proud of what we have achieved so far for JCS Fish as an independent family firm and Jack brings some very useful skills to the company.”

Andrew continues: “As an undergraduate Jack earned his stripes in various production roles in the factory during the summer holidays so he is already familiar with how the business works. He can look forward to excellent support and mentoring not just from myself and Louise but from everyone else in the business.“

  • “Since graduating I have concentrated on broadening my business experience. It seemed like a natural next step to come into the family business although in some ways working for the family will probably prove harder than working anywhere else!”
