Brendan is all about fish and fishermen. Since graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Health Management and Policy, he has wanted to work with the seafood industry. Brendan got his first taste while working for New Hampshire Community Seafood before doing experiential marketing at Pierce Promotions in Portland, ME. Today, Brendan works with fishermen to secure high quality local seafood, including collaboratively finding ways to improve handling and logistics. When he’s not on a boat with a commercial fisherman, Brendan is still likely found on the water recreationally fishing.
