Nova Scotia


Chief Financial Officer

At this exciting time in their 45-year history, Clearwater seeks a Chief Financial Officer to join their executive team in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Clearwater is a global industry leader invested in sustainability, research, technology and innovative solutions impacting every aspect of the seafood industry from ocean-to-plate.

In January of 2021, the Mi’kmaq Coalition partnered with Premium Brands to become the new owners of Clearwater Seafoods. The Mi’kmaq Coalition was formed by seven Mi’kmaq communities in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The collective investment of the Mi’kmaq in Clearwater represents the single largest investment in the seafood industry by any Indigenous group in Canada. Premium Brands is a publicly traded company based in British Columbia, which owns a broad range of leading specialty food manufacturing and differentiated food distribution businesses.

As a hands-on business and finance expert, the CFO brings an independent point of view to strategic decision-making, and plays a leading role in creating a long-term financial strategy to support Clearwater’s objectives for future growth.

As Clearwater’s next CFO, you have significant experience and interest in fully understanding business operations, capital allocation and cash flow management, building strategic partnerships, M&As and/or joint ventures and continuing to develop a high-performance finance team. Passionate in what you do and confident in your abilities, you are a practical and open-minded leader and team player with an inspiring and inclusive leadership style.
