Thiraphong Chansiri, President & CEO of Thai Union Group, PLC, stated "Our business in North America continues to provide the greatest portion of revenue for Thai Union, globally. This fact is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff across all our businesses. By appointing Bryan Rosenberg to the President and CEO of TUNA responsible for both COSI and COSFF businesses, we believe we can continue to drive revenues and innovation to firmly take us into the next decade of TUNA’s evolution. Bryan has a proven track record of accomplishments in building and leading COSFF. We believe he will bring those tremendous successes into his new expanded role".
Thiraphong Chansiri, continued, "We want to thank Valentin for his work to reinvigorate the COSI business for our organization and we wish him all the very best in the future".
